The Dental Library’s?áshelving repair project, which required that all print materials be removed from the shelves, has been completed more than 2 weeks ahead of schedule. Staff from Dental and Ische have worked diligently over the past 3 weeks to remove?áitems?ábefore repair work began and?áreturn them to their proper places (ie, ?ábooks in call number order and journals are alphabetical).
Ahead of schedule, the books section of the Dental Library has been set to rights, with shelving repaired and the collection back in place. The project will continue in the journals section of the library. An estimated completion date for that portion of the project is unknown. In the meantime, if you need a journal article from our serials stacks, please let the library staff know and we will locate it for you.
If you’ve been in the Dental Library recently, you’ve no doubt noticed that there aren’t any books on the shelves right now.
We are in the middle of a large project to fix and reinforce our shelving units and in order for that to happen, we had to take everything off the shelves. ?áAlthough the books and journals are stashed everywhere but where they should be right now, we are open and ready to help you find the information you need. ?áIt just might take a little longer than usual.
During this project, we will try to keep the noise to a minimum ?ábut there will be some inevitable disturbances. ?áFree earplugs are available at the circulation desk while we finish this project!
Thanks for your understanding and patience.
A new webpage design has been launched by the Dental and Isch?® Libraries. The new?ásite complies with the University design and fully integrates the two Libraries.
The new URL is http://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/. All bookmarks to old Library pages will redirect to the new main page.
Please let us know if you can’t find something you’ve used in the past.
Welcome to bright shiny new year! The Libraries are both open.

The Dental Library is open from 8 am to 5 pm on Thursday, January 2nd and also resumes?ánormal hours on Friday, January 3rd.

Do your New YearÔÇÖs resolutions for 2014 involve publishing research results, a unique patient case, or your opinion on the latest industry trends? DonÔÇÖt know the difference between peer review and editorial review? The Dental Library hopes to help you learn more about becoming an author on January 7, when Dental Reference Librarian Rita Premo will be presenting ÔÇ£Scholarly Publishing: The BasicsÔÇØ at noon in the Wirth Room (2203) in School of Dentistry Administration Building. Among the topics to be discussed are the structure of scientific articles and the role of each section, the importance of the abstract, the information and materials you may need for submission, how to begin once youÔÇÖre staring at a blank screen, and why you should always get your residentÔÇÖs forwarding address. Even if youÔÇÖre not interested in research publishing, join us and learn why writing skills arenÔÇÖt just for journalism majors.

Those of you have visited the Dental Library in the past month may have been met with the sounds of hammers, drills, and paintbrushes coming from behind plastic sheeting. Now you can see what the cacophony was all about: a gorgeous set of lighted glass display cases.
They remain empty, but soon we will be moving many of the items currently displayed in the wooden cases to the right of the library doors in their new home. That area, then, will house much of our rare and old books collection.
The photocopiers in the Isch?® and Dental Libraries can no longer accept cash. They will only work with PayPaw from now on.?á This change was authorized by the managing department, Auxiliary Enterprises.
