Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Library -- New Orleans
The LSUHSC-NO Library has many electronic resources (link removed) including full-text, online books. The books can be accessed from anywhere using your LSUHSC UserID and password or your name, library barcode and PIN. The 6 primary online book services are LWW Books @ Ovid (link removed), McGraw-Hill's Access Medicine (link removed), MDConsult (link removed), Mosby's Nursing Consult (link removed), STAT!Ref (link removed), and Thieme Electronic Library (link removed). You can use the Library's Electronic Resources (link removed) page to link to each of these services, or you can link out directly from a title via our library catalog, INNOPAC (link removed). Each product updates titles with new editions as they are released in electronic format. New titles are added, and sometimes titles are removed. We strive to keep our catalog as up-to-date as possible, and make updates on a weekly basis.
