JaySearch is Here!

JaySearch is Here!

The Creighton University Libraries are excited to bring you JaySearch beginning on Monday, May 16th. JaySearch is our new discovery service and will provide integrated searching across a wide range of print and online resources. While searching what has traditionally been available via our soon-to-be-retired online catalog (CLIC) as well as Summon, JaySearch will also provide access to a wide array of resources, including journal articles, photos, maps, as well as additional resources from organizations such as the Library of Congress, the Public Library of Science (PLoS), and the U.S. Department of Energy.The Creighton University Libraries continue to license a large number of collections and resources, most of which are searched when research is conducted via JaySearch.

Additionally, if you login to JaySearch with your netID and BLUE password, you will have the ability to request resources from the Creighton University Libraries, view your library record, as well as save, organize, e-mail, print, and export research items of interest.

Please contact Library Staff with questions – research or otherwise. We look forward to growing and realizing the potential of JaySearch with you.

Watch for JaySearch starting Monday, May 16th!
