Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Library -- New Orleans
Off Campus Access to Library Resources
Why should I get a Library barcode for my LSUHSC ID?
Remote access (link removed) through WAM (Web Access Management) is the answer. Whether you're doing a clinical rotation out of the city or research late at night when the Library is closed (link removed), getting access to full-text materials will not be a problem.
To get a barcode, just bring your LSUHSC ID to the Circulation Desk and fill out a patron registration form. A barcode will be affixed to the back. Remote sign up requires a fax machine. Please call the Circulation Desk (504-568-6100) for more information.
When off campus, start by going to the Library's homepage (link removed). Next you can search the holdings through INNOPAC (link removed), the Libraries' online catalog, and click on the link to the journal or book you are interested in. Another option is to select a specific database in the Electronic Resources (link removed) section of the web page.
In either case you will be directed to the WAM login screen and asked for the following information:
Your first and last name with a space in between. Not case sensitive.
Your 14 digit barcode number. No spaces.
If this is your first time accessing WAM click on the Proceed to the Database button since you do not yet have a PIN number.
Another screen will appear that looks very similar to the previous screen. Enter your name and barcode number again. Now you will be prompted to create a PIN. This can be anything you want, a name, number, or alpha numeric combination between 4 and 8 characters. Click on Proceed to the Database button and you should have access.
If you have any problems with this process contact the Circulation Desk at 504-568-6100.
The temporary access for those without a barcode of their own will be going away this fall so now is the time to stop by the Library and get your barcode to use this valuable service.
