Did I hear primary sources?

Have you heard about our Rare Books Room? Nestled in the back corner on the main floor of Reinert-Alumni Memorial Library, the Rare Books Room is a treasure trove of primary source materials for all your researching needs!


Students, faculty, members of the Creighton community, and other interested parties are welcome to explore our Rare Books Room during our open hours (always conveniently posted on our website). Our collections include Shakespeare folios, first edition Willa Cather novels, a 14th-century prayer book, a book written and signed by Johnny Cash, and much more. There’s something for everyone, whether your interest lies in history, science, medicine, astronomy, foreign languages, theology, and beyond!
