Remote access server upgrade

The server upgrade was successful. Creighton NetID logins usually contain your initials and some random numbers. Only current faculty, staff, and students should have unrestricted access to the online library collections. The server upgrade is helping us to comply with the publisher's legal contracts regarding who may use our collections.

Today is the end of the semester. The process to upgrade the server has begun.

The off-campus authentication server administered by library staff will be upgraded at the end of the semester. Once completed, only Creighton NetID login credentials will be supported. If you don't have a NetID, you will need to be sponsored by your school. To check if you have a Creighton NetID and to reset the password if needed, go to http://ami.creighton.edu.

JaySearch is Here!

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) as well as Summon, 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. The Creighton University Libraries continue to license a large number of collections and resources, most of which are searched when research is conducted via JaySearch.

Additionally, if you login to JaySearch with your netID and BLUE password, 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.

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!
