Library adds the CSE SCIENTIFIC STYLE AND FORMAT online!

SSFO-logo

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!

 

 

 

Network Issues

The Network Center in Baton Rouge unexpectedly lost power around 7:30 am this morning. Systems have been slowly coming back online as the IT department finds alternatives. Full power will not be restored until the end of the day (fingers crossed).

At this moment, we do not have access to our online catalog, INNOPAC, but the Libraries’ webpages have been restored. Please contact us for work arounds.

Our chat and email services do seem to be back up. And telephone service was unaffected.

Update: JAMA and AMA journals now available

UPDATE: These journals are available now, but please let us know if you have any trouble.

All journals we receive through the JAMA Network are currently unavailable. We will update as soon as the issue has been resolved.

If you need any other assistance, please contact us.

Update: Link resolver now working in PubMed

UPDATE: The link resolver is now working correctly in PubMed. However, please let us know if you have any problems or need any other help.

There is a system-wide problem that causing the link resolver to be unavailable in PubMed. If you need to search MEDLINE and wish to use our link resolver to check the availability of an article, you can do so either through Ovid or EBSCOhost.

If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Natural Medicines aka Natural Standard

naturalmedicines_logo

 

Natural Medicines is the new name of the Natural Standard database. Natural Medicines is an authoritative resource on dietary supplements, natural medicines, and complementary alternative and integrative therapies. Access is available on and off campus.

LibGuides Problems

All the Libraries’ LibGuides are currently experiencing very slow response time OR won’t load at all. We are working with the host company to solve the problem.

*Edit* Monday, January 12th 8:40am.

The issue appears to have been resolved over the weekend.

PubMed problems resolved

UPDATE: The earlier problems accessing PubMed have been resolved. Please do not hesitate to let us know if you are still having troubles with this or any other Library resource.

Original post:

We are currently experiencing problems accessing PubMed both on- and off-campus. In addition, the WebBridge Link Resolver is not working from PubMed, so you will not see links to articles when you check the availability from the citations.

If you wish to continue searching PubMed, you will need to check for the availability of articles by looking up the journal titles in the Library’s catalog, INNOPAC.

The link resolver is still working correctly in other databases that also search MEDLINE. You can search Ovid or MEDLINE through EBSCOhost, and you will see any available links to the articles in the citations when you click the “Check Full Text” link.

We will update as soon as we have more information. If you need any more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Update: A to Z List access problems

Although the previous problems with the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List were thought to have been fixed, they are still lingering today with the list being unavailable or running slow. There is no estimate as to when the issues will be resolved.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Update: A to Z List Now Working

After an outage earlier today, the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List is now available again.

If you need any other assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Link Resolver Tips: OCLC

Select OCLC databases have recently been configured to work with the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver. If you perform a search in ArticleFirst, ECO (Electronic Collections Online), ERIC, or MEDLINE from the list of available databases in OCLC, you now have the opportunity to check whether the library has access to that particular article or resource.

Once you perform a search for a topic, click the title for the desired reference:
