Using HSL Small Group Rooms

Using HSL Small Group Rooms

Beginning Wednesday, November 8th, 2017, groups of two (2) or more will be able to reserve our Small Group Study Rooms, from 4 hours to one week in advance (they cannot be booked in advance for individual use).

This applies only to the following roomsBICR 239A, 239B, 239C, 240A, 240B, 241, 242, 243, 244, and 244A.

Reservations will be limited to Creighton University students, faculty, and staff (a CU email is necessary).

Individuals or groups will still be able to use rooms not reserved, but may find their checkout time truncated if a room has an existing reservation.

Individuals will be able to reserve any combination of rooms for group use for a total of two (2) hours per day, up to eight (8) hours per week (Sunday to Saturday).  FYI, groups will need to coordinate their reservations to get a room longer than two hours in a row.

After a reservation has been submitted, a confirmation email should be received.
You will have one hour to confirm your reservation, or it will be automatically canceled.

You will have 15 minutes after the Reservation start time to pick up the key to your room.
Failure to retrieve the key in that time will result in cancelation of the reservation.

Visit our LibGuides page for more information, or go straight to the reservations page here.

JaySearch updates

JaySearch updates

The Creighton University Libraries are excited to bring you updates to JaySearch beginning on Friday, October 13th. JaySearch is our discovery service and provides integrated searching across a wide range of print and online resources.  In addition to displaying a new, stream-lined interface, look for the following updates in JaySearch:  a more mobile-friendly experience, improved Advanced Search capability, and a more intuitive design with quick access to frequently used tools.  Additionally, while still finding all Creighton University library holdings as well as most Creighton University-licensed collections and resources, JaySearch now finds selected library holdings from eight (8) Iowa academic institutions.
Continue to login to JaySearch with your netID and BLUE password to 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.
Please contact Library Staff with questions – research or otherwise. We look forward to growing and realizing the potential of JaySearch with you.
Watch for the updated JaySearch starting Friday, October 13th!

Trial access to Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database

Trial access to Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database

Trial access to Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database

Creighton University students and faculty have trial access to the Dentistry and Oral Sciences Source (DOSS) database on the EBSCOhost platform through the end of 2017.

DOSS, an index to dentistry and oral sciences literature, contains indexing and abstracts of more than 300 academic journals in all areas of dentistry (160 with current full-text articles with no embargo, and 40 with embargoes from 6 to 18 months) and 31 full-text books. The Health Sciences Library currently subscribes to only 8 of the active full-text journals in the collection.

Access to DOSS is here.

More detailed information about the contents is here.

Please explore this database and consider whether it would be a useful support to the teaching and research of the Creighton University School of Dentistry. Send comments and inquiries to Bryan Stack, Collection Services Librarian, or 402-280-5137.

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.
