Message from the Assistant Vice Provost for Libraries

To our library users:

As you may be aware, Creighton University has suspended in-person courses beginning on March 16, 2020 and will be moving to online delivery of courses for the near future. This is an effort to protect the health of our faculty, staff, and students, and to contribute to efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19, and reduce the burden on our healthcare systems.

The Libraries (Reinert-Alumni Memorial Library and Health Sciences Library) will continue to partner with the University to offer high quality information resources to support learning. Our buildings will remain open, although hours will be shortened to reflect reduced staff capacity in the absence of many of our student workers. Please refer to the hours on our website, which are continuously updated.

For those accessing library services from off campus, the library is launching an online guide to offer reminders of how to locate resources remotely. Librarians are available to support faculty with procuring digital resources required for courses and online reference consultations will be available by appointment. To support students experiencing social isolation, our staff will highlight streaming video and music services that we offer. For those in our residence halls, we will be purchasing additional feature films to make available.

If you visit our library facilities, be aware that campus has implemented additional cleaning procedures to keep our community safe.

Our libraries are here to support students, faculty, and staff with information needs – wherever you may be located.
