JaySearch updates

JaySearch updates

The Creighton University Libraries are excited to bring you updates to JaySearch beginning on Friday, October 13th. JaySearch is our discovery service and provides integrated searching across a wide range of print and online resources.  In addition to displaying a new, stream-lined interface, look for the following updates in JaySearch:  a more mobile-friendly experience, improved Advanced Search capability, and a more intuitive design with quick access to frequently used tools.  Additionally, while still finding all Creighton University library holdings as well as most Creighton University-licensed collections and resources, JaySearch now finds selected library holdings from eight (8) Iowa academic institutions.
Continue to login to JaySearch with your netID and BLUE password to 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 the updated JaySearch starting Friday, October 13th!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Consider these videos from Films On Demand:
    ▪    Mondays at Racine
Directed by Oscar®-winner Cynthia Wade, Mondays at Racine tells the uplifting story of Rachel Demolfetto and Cynthia Sansone, two sisters who do their part in the fight against cancer by providing free beauty treatments – hair, makeup, manicures and pedicures – to cancer patients at their salon every month.
    ▪    Breast Cancer: Disease and…Ease
According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, and the American Cancer Society estimates that the lifetime risk of breast cancer will rise to one in seven women by the year 2024. This program shows how breast cancer develops, how can it be detected and diagnosed, and how it is typically treated.
    ▪    Breast Cancer in Young Women: Second Opinion—Taking Charge of Your Health Care
Getting a breast cancer diagnosis is scary at any age, but unique issues surround this disease when it is diagnosed early in life. Learn about the emotional, physical, social and medical issues surrounding breast cancer in young women. Meet Geralyn Lucas, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in her 20s. Hear how her unexpected diagnosis changed her whole perspective on life.
    ▪    Ken Burns: Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies series
The story of the war on cancer spans centuries and continents. It is a scientific story, but also a deeply human one: of doctors, researchers, and especially patients who-through courage, suffering, and occasional hubris-pushed the boundaries of knowledge. These people helped define cancer as the scourge of the modern age, and then mobilized the federal government and private industry to wage an all-out campaign against it-a campaign we are still fighting. Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning book by Siddhartha Mukherjee and brought to the screen by executive producer Ken Burns, tells the complete story of cancer, from its first description in an ancient Egyptian scroll to the gleaming laboratories of modern research institutions. At six hours, the film interweaves a sweeping historical narrative; with intimate stories about contemporary patients; and an investigation into the latest scientific breakthroughs that may have brought us, at long last, to the brink of lasting cures.

Trial access to Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database

Trial access to Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database

Creighton University students and faculty have trial access to the Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database on the EBSCOhost platform through the end of 2017.

DOSS, an index to dentistry and oral sciences literature, contains indexing and abstracts of more than 300 academic journals in all areas of dentistry (160 with current full-text articles with no embargo, and 40 with embargoes from 6 to 18 months) and 31 full-text books. The Health Sciences Library currently subscribes to only 8 of the active full-text journals in the collection.

Access to DOSS is here.

More detailed information about the contents is here.

Please explore this database and consider whether it would be a useful support to the teaching and research of the Creighton University School of Dentistry. Send comments and inquiries to Bryan Stack, Collection Services Librarian, bryanstack@creighton.edu or 402-280-5137.

The fences around the old hospital are making it difficult to get to our entrance. The only access to the front door is by walking south on the sidewalk between our building and the dental school from Burt Street. Monday through Friday before about 6 pm; you can access the building from the doors on the south side of the garage under our building. If you park in the visitor's lot west of the dental school you should walk east along Burt Street. Please call us at 402 280 5109 if you have questions as there will be changes as the demolition around the hospital progresses.
