Library adds the CSE SCIENTIFIC STYLE AND FORMAT online!


The Library is pleased to announce that we now have an online subscription to the most recent edition of the Scientific style and format: the CSE manual for authors, editors, and publishers.  Currently in its 8th edition, the CSE style manual has been a standard reference for scientific publishing since 1960.  As it is the required format for Graduate Studies theses and dissertations, we are most excited to be able to offer our users this access both on and off campus.  For off campus access, be sure to log in through our Web Access Management system (WAM) using your library barcode number and PIN.

We hope this helps ease and simplify your writing process!

004d-ELS_BannerAd_400x90_04-17This is just a gentle reminder that our MDConsult access will expire on Sunday, 5/11/2014.

Doody’s Precision Search not working

Doody’s Precision Search is not working. We will let you know when access has been restored.

MD Consult to be discontinued. Access ends May 11, 2014.

Adios! Au revoir! Ciao!  MD Consult will be going away.  Our access is set to expire May 11, 2014.  While Elsevier has developed a new product, Clinical Key, that replaces and expands MD Consult, the cost is currently far beyond our budget.  Please know that we are making every effort to purchase essential MD Consult books and journals from other sources as they are available and affordable.

We recently purchased 10 of the most heavily used books on another online platform, R2 Digital Library.  Many of the books can be found in the Library’s print collection.  A library guide has been created to help users find alternative content.  We have also subscribed to select journals via Science Direct.  We will continue to make replacing this content a priority, however funding is limited.

The School of Medicine first acquired MD Consult in 1999.  It was one of the earliest online resources for medical books and journals.  Funding for this resource has always been a joint effort with costs being shared among some of the schools and, at one time, the regional Area Health Education Centers.  For the last 10 years, funding has been provided by the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health, and the Library.

Thanks to everyone for your support of MD Consult over the past 15 years!

New Faculty Publications! Congratulations to all our fantastic LSUHSC-NO authors!

The Library’s Faculty Publications display has been updated with eight new articles for the months of March and April.  The display highlights sixteen articles at a time, rotating eight new articles in each month.  The display is located near the Library’s internal elevator, which is on the first floor of the library.

These articles are part of the Library’s Faculty Publications Database, which is maintained by Reference Librarian, Kathy Kerdolff.  The database includes publications authored by LSUHSC-New Orleans faculty, researchers, and students since 1998.  It is updated weekly with new articles harvested from a variety of indexes, such as PubMed, Scopus, and CINAHL.

You can find more information about the database and listings for our current and past displays from Library’s Faculty Publications landing page:

To add your faculty publications to the database and display, or for questions about either, contact Kathy Kerdolff.
