Public Access Computers
The LSU Medical Center Library provides twenty-one public access computers throughout its three floors. The primary purpose of these computers is to enable users to access the Library's online catalog (Innopac) and database services (Ovid, WebSpirs, etc.) for informational and educational activities.
Thirteen computer workstations are centralized on the Library's first floor. Also in this area is the Library's Reference Services Desk with a librarian scheduled from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays to assist patrons in using the Library's computers. New in this area are six carrels with electrical connections as well as Ethernet data ports. Patrons can bring laptop computers into the Library and access network resources at these locations.
Another eight computers are evenly distributed between the Library's second and third floors. Again, these computers are configured to access the online catalog and database services. All public access computers are available to any user of the Library.
The LSUMC Library also offers a computer lab equipped with personal computers and Macintoshes on its second floor. The equipment in this area provides patrons with access to the Library's catalog and database services, the Internet, and a variety of software and computer aided instructional materials. The lab is key-access and open only to LSUMC faculty, staff, and students. The computer lab will be undergoing extensive remodeling this summer. We ask your patience and understanding during this transition.
The Library Staff, together with the Academic Affairs Computer Support Staff, continually evaluates the ongoing needs of library patrons for network resources. For this reason computer access will continue to evolve in the LSUMC Library.
