JaySearch is Coming

JaySearch is Coming

The Creighton University Libraries are excited to bring you JaySearch beginning on Monday, May 16th. JaySearch is our new discovery service and will provide integrated searching across a wide range of print and online resources. While searching what has traditionally been available via our soon-to-be-retired online catalog (CLIC), JaySearch will also provide access to a wide array of resources, including journal articles, photos, maps, as well as additional resources from organizations such as the Library of Congress, the Public Library of Science (PLoS), and the U.S. Department of Energy. If you are searching for material on a focused research topic, however, discipline-specific databases, such as CINAHL, ERIC, PSYCInfo, and Sociological Abstracts, may be more appropriate.

Additionally, if you login to JaySearch with your netID, you will have the ability to request resources from the Creighton University Libraries, view your library record, as well as save, organize, e-mail, print, and export research items of interest.

The Creighton University Libraries, however, recognize there is variety in research needs. Therefore, while JaySearch integrates a number of separate collections and resources, these very same collections and resources – and their traditional interfaces – will still be available to search independently of JaySearch if desired.

Please contact Library Staff with questions – research or otherwise. We look forward to growing and realizing the potential of JaySearch with you.

Watch for JaySearch starting Monday, May 16th!
