Research & Instruction
Research, Instruction, and Assessment
Creighton University librarians support faculty, staff, and students with achieving academic success, advancing scholarship, teaching and assessing lifelong information literacy, and supporting evidence-based practice in clinical settings. These skills are an integral part of critical thinking in the Magis Core Curriculum.
Here are a few examples of research and instruction support our librarians offer:
- Define and narrow your research topics
- Identify library resource or tools to meet your needs
- Manage and cite your sources correctly
- Understand options for publishing and sharing research
- Complete a literature search for a patient care need
Schedule an individual consultation with a librarian by filling out the consultation request form with the button at the right. You may reach out directly to a subject librarian using our directory to schedule a consultation. Librarians accommodate drop-in appointments when possible, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. We can be reached by phone, live chat, or make an appointment.
Literature Search Service
A literature search is a comprehensive search of the published literature on a specific topic. This service, conducted by our librarians, is available to faculty, residents, and staff. Results of the search will be delivered to the requester, generally via email or a shared folder on RefWorks. To further their research skills, students are encouraged to develop a search strategy with a librarian through a research consultation.
The First-Year Library Experience
Library Explorations and Integrations
Faculty are invited to enroll their subject librarian in BlueLine, in order to share their course syllabus and assignment(s). Knowing these expectations enables us to provide better library support, both inside and outside the classroom. We can also provide assistance with links to library content.
