Food for fines to benefit Creighton Cupboard

Food for fines to benefit Creighton Cupboard

Good news – you can help combat food insecurity on the Creighton Campus and pay your library fees at the same time, before you head home for the holidays!

The Reinert Alumni Memorial Library and the Health Sciences Library are accepting donations of non-perishable, unexpired food items at a rate of one item per $1.00 owed. All items collected will be donated to the Creighton Cupboard.

You can clear up to $10 in combined overdue fees or lost item processing fees (where no item replacement fees are owed). Fees for document delivery, damaged item fees, and interlibrary loan fees do not qualify.

Study rooms are going keyless!

Study rooms are going keyless!

Starting January 2019, study rooms at the Health Sciences Library (HSL) will be keyless. The reservation system does not change  – you still reserve study rooms online through the HSL website. Go directly to your reserved room, because you no longer check out a key at the service desk. Monitors will be near the rooms to display reservations.

The 4 classrooms scheduled by Centralized Reservations, and the 3 sections of the Thune Seminar Room are not changing. You still need to check out a key from the service desk.

If you have questions regarding this change, email

Access to building

Access to building

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.
