Scopus and Web of Science database trial March 17-April 17

Scopus and Web of Science database trial March 17-April 17

The Creighton University Libraries are conducting a trial through April 17 to compare the Scopus and Web of Science databases.

Both are bibliographic databases offering primary indexing, citation indexing and tracking, measures of the academic impact of journals, and the ability to profile the work of individual authors.

Publisher representatives will present overviews of their respective databases in the Health Sciences Library Thune Seminar Room:

  • Scopus: Monday, March 20, at 10 a.m., noon (lunch provided), and 2 p.m.
  • Web of Science: Monday, March 27, at 10 a.m., noon (lunch provided), and 2 p.m.

More detail about the trial, with links to relevant articles comparing and evaluating the databases, and an evaluation survey, will be available here.

Faculty evaluation of both products is vital to this decision. Please attend the overview sessions, explore both databases, and submit a survey.

If you have questions, please contact:
Health Sciences Library: John Mitchell, JohnMitchell@creighton.edu, 402-280-4127
Reinert Alumni Library: Chris Carmichael, ccarmichael@creighton.edu, 402-280-1757

Remote access server upgrade

Remote access server upgrade

The server upgrade was successful. Creighton NetID logins usually contain your initials and some random numbers. Only current faculty, staff, and students should have unrestricted access to the online library collections. The server upgrade is helping us to comply with the publisher's legal contracts regarding who may use our collections.

Today is the end of the semester. The process to upgrade the server has begun.

The off-campus authentication server administered by library staff will be upgraded at the end of the semester. Once completed, only Creighton NetID login credentials will be supported. If you don't have a NetID, you will need to be sponsored by your school. To check if you have a Creighton NetID and to reset the password if needed, go to http://ami.creighton.edu.
