A new selection of articles has been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. Each month the Library is proud to present copies of eight of these publications in a rotating display of 16. They can be viewed in the Reference area, on the wall between the main entrance and the Library elevator, on the third floor of the Resource Center Building.

Ische Library Closed – September 20th

University Facilities sent out the following email at 1:30 pm today:

On Saturday, September 20th, from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM, there will be a complete air conditioning outage in the Allied Health/Nursing Building, Clinical Sciences Research Building, Lions/LSU Clinics Building, Medical Education Building and the Resource Center Building.  With the exception of the Animal Care spaces, there will not be any air conditioning anywhere in these buildings during this outage.  Walk-in coolers will not be affected but limited access to any refrigeration units is recommended due to higher indoor air temperatures. This outage is necessary for a contractor to replace a large failing chilled water isolation valve in the Central Plant.  This valve must be replaced as soon as possible.  Further delay may result in total failure and an extended loss of air conditioning during regular weekday hours.

Because of the a/c shutdown both the Isché Library and the Library Commons will be closed on Saturday.

The Isché Library will reopen at 1:30 pm on Sunday, September 21st.

Learn at the Libraries in September

Evidence-Based Practice is a term that is often bandied about but rarely understood. During the Library Lunchtime Learning session in September, we hope to clear up some of the mystery by taking attendees step by step through the EBP process, from identifying the clinical question through evaluating the decision made. Other topics of conversation include the resources that are most helpful for answering EBP questions as well as barriers to implementing EBP.

We hope you can join us at either workshop. If you plan to attend, please RSVP to dentlib@lsuhsc.edu.

Details:

Evidence-Based Practice

September 10, 12-1 p.m.

Wirth Room (2203), Dental Administration Building

and

September 16, 12-1 p.m.

Computer Laboratory, 4th floor Library, Resource Center Building

Life and Limb: The Toll of the Civil War Library Exhibition

Life & LimbThe LSUHSC  Libraries are hosting an exhibition developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine. This exhibit was developed to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War and the more than three million soldiers who fought in the war. Life and Limb: The Toll of the Civil War explores the experiences of disabled veterans, their role as symbols of the fractured nation and a stark reminder of the costs of the conflict.

The perspectives of surgeons, physicians, and nurses are richly documented in the history of Civil War medicine, which highlights the heroism and brutality of battlefield operations and the challenges of caring for the wounded during wartime. Yet the experiences of injured soldiers during the conflict and in the years afterwards are less well-known.

More than three million soldiers fought in the war from 1861-1865. More than half a million died, and almost as many were wounded but survived. Hundreds of thousands were permanently disabled by battlefield injuries or surgery, which saved lives by sacrificing limbs.

 

 

Life & Limb 2In addition to the travelling exhibition, there is a display in the Library’s New Books section with supplemental material from our own collection on surgery, prosthetics and the Civil War. Some of the materials featured include books from our collection, journal articles that can be accessed through our catalog, photocopied materials from our old & rare collection, and links to resources available online. Check out the full Bibliography (with links!).

The Exhibit is available beginning August 4, 2014 at the Ische Library in the Learning Commons. The supplementary display is on the New Books shelves next to the internal elevators.

The display will move to the Dental Library on August 25 and will be available for viewing there until September 12.

Come and see it for yourself!
