The Ask a Librarian/Chat Box, available from the Libraries’ webpage, has been so popular since the?áJanuary redesign that staffing hours are expanding.?á
The Service will now be available for most of the hours that the Isch?® Library is open. Hours will now be 8:30 am to 9:30 pm Monday through Thursday, Friday 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, Saturday 10 am to 5:30 pm and Sunday 2 pm to 9:30 pm.
Additionally, the Dental Library has it’s own?áAsk a Dental Librarian/Chat Box on it’s main page with staffing hours that match it’s opening and closing schedule.
It’s easy to tell if someone is available to answer your question by looking at the chat box.
Available / Unavailable
Of course, Library Staff are still available for assistance in person, on the phone or by email, too.
Due to the chance of snow & ice tomorrow, LSUHSC will be closed for classes on Tuesday, January 28th.
The Libraries will also be closed; although will be open this evening until regular time (10pm for Isch?® and 8pm for Dental).
*Update* the campus will remain closed on Wednesday, January 29th due to a weather emergency.
For the latest information, check the campus emergency website.
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.
Page 164 of Andreas Vesalius: De corporis humani fabrica libri septem
We missed the 499th birthday?áof Andreas Vesalius who was born on December 31, 1514. 500th year?ácelebrations of the man and his accomplishments are in the works.
The LSUHSC Libraries is lucky enough to own a 1568 edition?áof his De humani corporis fabrica libri septem which is housed in the Isch?® Library Rare Books Room (and is available by appointment only). The first edition of this title is from 1543.
For more information, see this post from NLM’s Circulating Now blog.
Also, you can view the digitized?á1543 edition of De humani corporis fabrica libri septem?áat the NLM’s Historical Anatomies on the Web?ápage.
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.
