To more accurately reflect the myriad sources available, the Electronic Journals List is now the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List. When it was introduced as a Library resource in 2008, the majority of titles included were journals, but as more and more types of resources other than journals have made their way onto the list, a new moniker became necessary.
The E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List provides links to many of the journals and books available electronically through Library subscriptions, titles that come via full-text databases like Academic Search Complete, and numerous free journals and books from sites such as Project Gutenberg.
Even though there are tens of thousands of resources available on the list, we are unable to include everything on it so the Library’s Catalog is still a good place to start your search when you need a book or journal.
Scirus, Elsevier’s free search engine, will be shutting down in January 2014. In a message to users, they stated no more content will be added starting immediately.
We will keep the links active for the WebBridge Link Resolver until Scirus is completely discontinued.
Update: All Springer LINK journals and books are now working. If you encounter any problems, please contact us.
September 9: We are unable to access any of the journals or books published by Springer that are available through Springer LINK. We are working to have this problem resolved and will update as soon as possible. For a list of affected journals, check this link.
The Springer Protocols, which are hosted on a different platform, are working fine.
We’re pleased to offer yet another way to help you get to Library resources in the form of the LibX browser extension. Available for Chrome and Firefox, this add-on has a number of features, including quick ways to search databases and re-load pages for more seamless off-campus access. Download the LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans Library Edition of LibX at http://libx.org/editions/6F/A1/6FA10750/libx.html.
More information about this browser extension, its features, and other tips can be found on the Library’s LibX LibGuide.
UPDATE: We have been informed by those who manage the list that this is the expected behavior. You will most likely see titles that do and do not begin with the desired term when you search the list and choose the “Begins with” option.
The “Begins with” search option for the Electronic Journals List is currently not functioning correctly. We have been in contact with those who manage the list, and they are presently working to solve the problem. We will update as soon as we hear more regarding this issue.
If you need assistance with this or any other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Update: As of June 27th, the link resolver is once again available for use with Scirus.
June 11th: The WebBridge Link Resolver is currently not available through Scirus. The problem is being investigated and will hopefully be fixed soon.
If you have a laptop issued by your school and you’re having troubles sending jobs to the Library printers on the 3rd and 4th floors, you may need to change the driver on your laptop. To do this, locate the printer properties and then change the selected printer driver to HP Universal Printing PS (v5.4). You can also contact the academic supporter for your school for more assistance, including receiving updated downloads with the proper drivers for the printers located in the Library.
The latest addition to our lineup of databases and sites configured to work with the WebBridge Link Resolver is Scirus. However, you must set up the preferences in Scirus to show the link resolver icon whether you are searching the site on- or off-campus.
First, select “Preferences” from the Scirus main page:
Next, under the “Library Partner Links” change the radio button to “Enable,” select “L” from the alphanumeric list, and then select the entry for “LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans Libraries” :
Once you’ve made these changes, click the “Save Preferences” button:
The WebBridge Link Resolver icon will display only for journal articles as long as you do not clear the cookies from your browser:
If you need any more information about the link resolver, please check out the WebBridge Link Resolver LibGuide or our newly-updated link resolver handout.
We’ve recently added an Apple Computers and Devices LibGuide with tips about using your Mac or iOS device. Included is information about how to get on to the LSUHSC networks as well as how to use your Mac with the LSUHSC Citrix Web Interface.
Be sure to check out all of our other LibGuides that cover a variety of topics ranging from course-specific resources to how to cite that paper using the APA Style.
The Library has put together a walk through of the steps you will need to go through in order to use the LSUHSC Citrix Web Interface from your Mac computer.
If you use Google Scholar, you’ll be happy to know that it now works with the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver!
When on campus, you will automatically see a link for “Full text at LSUHSC-NO” next to the citations it has determined we can access:
However, unlike other databases and sites where the WebBridge Link Resolver is available, when you click on the “Full text at LSUHSC-NO” link you will see the following offering you two choices to link to the full-text of the citation:
As a result of the different information that Google Scholar sends, the first link searches PubMed and will use the link resolver to get to the article, whereas the second link will search for a DOI and link through CrossRef. In either case, if you do not find a match you will still have the opportunity to search INNOPAC, the Library’s online catalog, for the journal or book.
To configure Google Scholar to display the “Full text at LSUHSC-NO” links when searching off-campus, you will need to start with going to the Settings:
Then choose “Library Links” in the left column and perform a search for LSU, LSUHSC, Louisiana, or New Orleans to find the library under the name “LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans Libraries” and check the corresponding box to select it:
Then click “Save” and the “Full text at LSUHSC-NO” links will appear on Google Scholar as long as you don’t clear the history or cookies from your browser. Additionally, off-campus access will require your barcode and PIN to access articles.
If you need more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, a handout is available as well as a LibGuide highlighting tips and tricks for using the service.
Update: the affected titles are working as of Friday, February 22nd.
We are currently having trouble with all titles we receive from Informa Healthcare for Taylor and Francis. These are among the affected titles:
American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse
Annals of Medicine
Biotechnic and Histochemistry
Current Eye Research
Current Medical Research and Opinion
Experimental Lung Research
Free Radical Research
Issues in Mental Health Nursing
Journal of Asthma
Scandinavian Journal of Gastroenterology
Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Diseases
Scandinavian Journal of Rheumatology
Scandinavian Journal of Urology and Nephrology
You can also check the Electronic Journals List for alternate ways to access these titles in the interim.
We apologize for the inconvenience but hope to have this problem solved soon and our access restored.
Did you know you can access My EndNote Web through the Library’s subscription to Web of Knowledge/Web of Science? Start by going to any of the links to Web of Knowledge/Web of Science at http://www.lsuhsc.edu/no/library/ss&d/data/wok.html. Then look for the My EndNote Web link at the top of the page:
To log in you can use your existing Web of Knowledge user i.d. and password; if you do not have one, you can easily create a new account. Once you’ve entered this information, My EndNote Web will launch in a new tab or window and you’re all set to start managing those references! The tabs across the top will guide you through adding new citations and organizing your bibliographies:
There is also a handy link in Web of Knowledge/Web of Science to export the information from selected citations to your My EndNote Web account:
My EndNote Web also works with the WebBridge Link Resolver giving you the opportunity to check whether that article is available in the Library’s print or electronic collections. Look for the “LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text” icon next to each citation you’ve added to your account:
A new tab or window will then open showing the options you have to retrieve the article. If you need more information about the link resolver, this handout will walk you through the process and the Link Resolver LibGuides page also has tips you can use.
Update: linking to JSTOR articles is working correctly as of January 7, 2013
Access to any articles listed as being from any of the JSTOR collections when using the WebBridge Link Resolver is currently not working. You can still browse and retrieve articles from the JSTOR journals by going directly to the titles through INNOPAC or the Electronic Journals List.
The end of the holiday has also meant the launch of the new Springer platform for our region. Unfortunately, we are experiencing a few troubles with the new version that we use to access books, journals, and the Springer Protocols. Currently all Springer sites are running extremely slow, so you will likely encounter trouble browsing the titles. Additionally, we have noticed that issues from some journal titles were not transferred to the new platform, but you can still access these missing issues and all other content on the old platform by following the link to the old site:
If you have any questions or need any assistance with these or any other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us.
