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.
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.

The Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver is currently not available when searching Google Scholar. This problem is affecting all libraries that use WebBridge. When on campus you will not see the “Full-text at LSUHSC-NO” link next to citations nor are you able to add us when configuring off-campus settings through the “Library Links” list.
Until this problem is solved, there are a few options to check whether we have full-text access to a journal, book, or other work referenced in a citation:
