LSUHSC-NO Libraries News
Printing can seem like a complicated process; however after you do it once you’ll be an expert! Below is the 4-step process:
Prior to printing, go to the bookstore to get your ID formatted in order to add money to it.
Purchase a Pay Paw card for $1 from the Pay Paw machine itself, located on the 3rd floor of the library.
Add money to your formatted ID/Pay Paw card by adding cash directly to your card through the Pay Paw machine or by doing so through the Pay Paw’s online system.
Sending a print job
When you print in either the Library Commons or in the Library, you will be asked to select a printer (3rd or 4th floor) and to give your print job a name and password. This is simply to identify your print job from others, so name it whatever you want. You can use the same name and password for multiple print-jobs. All print jobs are defaulted to black & white, single-sided sheets so please see specific instructions below for double-sided and color printing options.
Retrieving a print job
Go to the location you sent your print job (3rd or 4th floor print station). Swipe your card on the card reader. Select your print-job name and press “Print.” Enter the password you created when you sent the print job. Your print job will be distributed and your card will be charged.
Single-sided = 10¢ per page
Double-sided = 14¢ per page (Select Preferences on printing screen, Click Finishing tab, then CHECK box by “Print on both sides”)
Color = 25¢ per page (Select Preferences on printing screen, Click Color tab, then UNCHECK the “Print in Grayscale” box)
**Note – The Pay Paw machine only accepts dollar bills in increments of $1, $5 or $20.
Coins are NOT accepted.
Please stop by the Circulation Desk on the 3rd floor of the library for assistance.
Ever wonder where to start for a research project or just curious about the numerous resources that the library has to offer for your field of study? Check out the subject specific LibGuides. You never know what new resources, tools and tips you’ll come across!
The most recent publication is LibX, which is an add-on for Firefox and Google Chrome that allows you to search the library’s catalog, as well as many other various databases in a slightly different way. It is quite convenient and saves a few steps in unearthing material for your research.
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 24-hour Library Commons space in the Resource Center building will be unavailable for use from 6pm to midnight this evening (Friday, May 24th) due to a scheduled domestic cold water outage throughout the building. No attempts to use any faucet, toilet, urinal, or water fountain should be made. A great excuse to give yourself a study break!
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:
In case you missed it, here’s an email message from the Chancellor on parking for Jazz Fest at the Dental School:
“The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival will be held at the New Orleans Fairgrounds this weekend (April 26-28) and next week (May 2-5). Dean Henry Gremillion, DDS, has kindly extended an invitation to LSUHSC New Orleans faculty, staff and students planning to attend to park at the Dental School, space permitting, with their LSUHSC ID’s and gate cards. University Police will accommodate entering and exiting through the Tensas Street Gate (the back Walk Thru Gate) on the above-referenced dates until 7:30 PM each night. After 7:30 PM, entering and exiting will be allowed only through the Florida Avenue drive-in. All LSUHSC rules and regulations remain in effect regarding proper use and care of our campus properties and facilities. Please see Chief William Joseph for any other questions.”
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.
Some users new to RefWorks came across this message when attempting to install Write-n-Cite on their school laptops:
“Microsoft visual studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (x86) needs to be installed for this installation to continue.”
Write-n-Cite requires the users to have Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 installed on their computers. It is a free download available from the Microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35594
Once that program is installed, you may proceed with the instillation process.
If you would like more information about RefWorks and Write-n-Cite please email the reference librarians, email@example.com. Keep an eye out for upcoming Introduction to RefWorks classes.
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.
If you use the WebBridge Link Resolver to check the availability of the full-text of an article from a citation you have saved in your RefWorks account, please be aware that there is a new requirement in order to show any available resources. You now need to have the PMID (PubMed ID) added to the “PMID” field in the citation. There was a change outside of our control that made this necessary in order to see available full-text for the work.
If there is no PMID for the citation, when you click the “LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text” icon you will see a link to check the Library’s catalog for the journal or book as well as a link to export the citation to your RefWorks account.
Another change has been made that will help with this new requirement for linking out of RefWorks: when you choose to export a citation to your RefWorks account from the WebBridge Link Resolver screen, the PMID (if available) will be automatically added to the RefWorks citation:
If you’d like to connect your Mac to the LSUHSC wireless or wired network, we’ve just added updated handouts to help you do so.
We also have tips and walkthroughs for connecting to the network with other operating systems and some mobile devices on the Library’s Wireless Instructions page.
If Ovid is your database of choice, there is a change that affects using it off-campus. You will still need to use your LSUHSC user i.d. and password whenever you attempt to use Ovid. The change, however, comes after your initial log in: you will then be asked to supply the information for your library account, which includes your name, barcode and PIN.
If you do not have an account or need other information about accessing our resources from off-campus, this page has tutorials and handouts to walk you through the process.
If you have any questions about this change or any of our services, please contact us.
We’ve received reports of there being some difficulty in accessing EBSCOhost databases from off-campus. In some cases you might see the following screen even after you’ve provided your name, barcode, and PIN when you’re attempting to use a database:
It is best to clear your browser’s cache, including the browsing history and cookies stored for your session. In Firefox you can do this by going to the Tools menu and selecting “Clear Recent History.” On Internet Explorer go to Tools->Internet Options and under the “General” tab there is a button to delete the Browsing History. Unfortunately you will have to start all over again with authenticating and searching the database after you’ve cleared all of this information.
This issue affects all of the EBSCOhost databases including CINAHL, Academic Search Complete, and PsycArticles.
If you encounter any problems, please do not hesitate to contact us.
