Hold or Search
If a book you need is checked out or not on the shelf, we can search for it and place it on hold for you. Simply submit the information requested on our Hold or Search web form, and you will receive notification when the item becomes available.
You may renew materials in person or online with a valid university ID card. To renew online, sign in to JaySearch with your Creighton credentials and click on My Account. Items cannot be renewed if they are already overdue or have already been placed on hold. Guest card holders may not renew items.
Items must be renewed or returned, in good condition, by the due date. After a 14-day grace period, you will be fined $5 per item. If an item is not returned within 42 days, you will be charged a replacement fee plus $10 for processing. We will waive the replacement charge when materials are returned.
Fines for overdue Course Reserves are 25 cents per hour for hourly items, and $1 per day for three- and seven-day items. If material is not returned, you will be charged the fine and replacement costs.
The Library may suspend your borrowing privileges if you have overdue materials or fines. We may also block registration or place a hold on your university records. The Library accepts payment in any of the following forms:
