Current Creighton University students, faculty, and staff are eligible for interlibrary loan services at no cost.
What material can be requested?
Any item can be requested if it is not already available at one of our libraries. We cannot borrow textbooks, and many libraries do not loan items such as DVDs, or dissertations.
How Long does it take?
Most books arrive in 8-10 days. Loan period is set by the lending library and is usually between 4-6 weeks.
Where do I pick up items when they arrive?
You will be notified by email when the items are available. These items may be picked up at the library service desk. Returnable materials not picked up within 10 days will be returned to the lending library.
Are there any restrictions?
The lending library determines the conditions of the loan, including the due date. Books must be renewed or returned (in good condition) by the date indicated.

Our Collection Development team began with an analysis of our print book circulation and pulled an initial list of all volumes that have not circulated in 15 years or more. This list was used as a starting point for this project, once assembled, our liaison librarians reviewed the titles in their subject areas and indicated content to retain from this list.
As the final step in this decision making process, our team is reaching out to our faculty to determine what we need to retain to support our mission of teaching, learning, and research. We invite faculty to review these title lists and indicate titles to retain in our print collection.
To indicate print titles to retain, please follow these steps:
