Our primary clientele are the students, faculty, and staff of Creighton University. Borrowing privileges and network access are generally granted only to these individuals. In some cases, however, we can accommodate visitors unaffiliated with Creighton, including:

  • Alumni and retirees of Creighton University
  • Students and faculty from other Nebraska colleges and universities
  • Clergy who serve in the metropolitan Omaha area
  • Visiting clergy or scholars with a Creighton host or affiliation

Please note that guest cards are not issued to spouses or dependents of Creighton employees unless they meet one of the above criterion. Application may be made at any time, although service will be faster during weekday hours. Alumni may borrow up to 10 items at one time and other guests may borrow up to 5 items at one time. Guest card holders cannot renew library materials. Please see Borrow or Renew for additional policy information.

Computer Use

The Library's computer network requires a Creighton netID and password. However, visitors may use the computer station located at the Circulation and Reserves desk to look up books in JaySearch.

Creighton alumni, retirees, franchise employees, prospective students, and visitors with a Creighton affiliation or Creighton sponsor are granted a courtesy login upon request. Network access is also available to reciprocal borrowers from other Nebraska colleges and universities for occasional use only.

Library Conduct

The Reinert-Alumni Library reserves the right to deny access to any person whose behavior disrupts or hinders Library use by Creighton University students, faculty and staff.

Children in the Library

No child younger than high school age, unless participating in an authorized Creighton University program, may enter the Reinert-Alumni Library unless accompanied by an adult, and may not be left unattended in the Library. Unaccompanied high school age children must leave by 7:00 p.m.

To accommodate the legal use of Federal depository materials in an academic library, any unaccompanied child under high school age who self-identifies the need to access Federal depository resources will receive mediated searching assistance from library staff to identify and make available this material.

If any child becomes disruptive or does not follow Library policies, the staff will contact Public Safety for assistance, or will ask the child to leave, depending on their age, behavior or other circumstances.
