EBSCO eBooks collection direct link

EBSCO is one of the Library’s many eBook providers, and over the past two years, we have been able to substantially increase our eBook offerings through the EBSCOhost platform.  We currently have over 100 titles in a variety of disciplines that support each of our 6 schools.

All of the EBSCO eBooks are accessible through our library catalog and E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, but now we have added another access point through our list of databases under ebooks (EBSCOhost).  This option will allow the user to browse and search all of the EBSCO eBooks in one place.  To see a complete listing of our EBSCO eBooks, be sure to click on the “eBooks” link on the top banner of the database and then select “View All” on the “Highlights” bar.

Don’t forget to check out all of our eBook collections.  We have created a handy-dandy ebooks LibGuides to help you navigate all the different options.

Reminder: MDConsult access expires Sunday, 5/11/2014

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

See our previous blog post here for more information: https://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/news/?p=9481.



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!

McGraw-Hill AccessMedicine, Surgery, and Emergency Medicine

McGraw-Hill recently?áunvelied their new online platform which is designed to integrate all of their Access products. The look is very different but the content is all there, so don’t panic when you see it. If you have trouble getting to anything, just let us know. We will post more information about the new platform soon.
Thanks for your patience!

New edition of the DSM available through PsychiatryOnline

The fifth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is now available through the PsychiatryOnline database. The DSM-5?« is the product of more than ten years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health.

The DSM has been the most comprehensive resource used by health professionals, social workers, and forensic and legal specialists to diagnose and classify mental disorders. In the United States the DSM serves as a universal authority for the diagnosis of psychiatric illnesses. Treatment recommendations, as well as payment by health care providers, are often determined by DSM classifications, so the appearance of a new version has significant practical importance.

The DSM-5?« was published on May 18, 2013, superseding the DSM-IV?«, which was published in 1994. The development of the new edition began with a conference in 1999, and proceeded with the formation of a Task Force in 2007, which developed and field-tested a variety of new classifications. In most respects DSM-5?« is not greatly changed from DSM-IV?«. Notable innovations include dropping Asperger syndrome as a distinct classification; loss of subtype classifications for variant forms of schizophrenia; dropping the “bereavement exclusion” for depressive disorders; a revised treatment of gender identity issues; and a new gambling disorder.

?áAlso featured in PsychiatryOnlineÔÇÖs DSM Library are:

  • Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV-TR?«)
  • DSM-IV-TR?« Handbook of Differential Diagnosis
  • Cases from DSM-IV-TR?« Casebook and Its Treatment Companion

PsychiatryOnline is a web-based psychiatry portal that includes books, journals, textbooks, practice guidelines, self-assessment, clinical and research news and medication patient handouts. LSUHSC-NO faculty, staff, and students can access PsychiatryOnline on campus, or off campus with use of a valid LSUHSC library barcode and PIN. Visit our PsychiatryOnline electronic resource page for more info. You can also connect to PsychiatryOnline by visiting the LibraryÔÇÖs website, and then selecting the ÔÇ£Online ResourcesÔÇØ category.
