With the recent switch to EBSCOhost as our provider for HaPI (Health and Psychosocial Instruments), a complication has popped up: if you click the “LSUHSC-NO Check Full Text” icon you will not find a match for the article. This is occurring because there is a problem with the information sent from HaPI to our WebBridge Link Resolver.
If you click the icon, you will probably see a link to request the article via Interlibrary Loan, even though we may actually have access to that article. The best thing to do at this point will be to search the library’s catalog through the link provided on the link resolver page:
We will update as soon as this problem is resolved. However, if you need any help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.
Somehow in the summer doldrums, we missed that EBSCO was switching from Lexi-PALS to AHFS Consumer Medication Information. This free database (to EBSCO subscribers) is used to supplement health science databases. AHFS is an acronym for American Hospital Formulary Service® and is published by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. It is updated monthly and information is available in both English and Spanish.
The Health and Psychosocial Instrument (HaPI) database is now available via EBSCOhost. HaPI is a bibliographic database which provides “information about behavioral measurement instruments. Information in the database is abstracted from hundreds of leading journals covering health sciences and psychosocial sciences. Additionally, instruments from Industrial/Organizational Behavior and Education are included.”
LSUHSC Libraries have had access to HaPI since the fall of 2001 via Ovid, but we switched suppliers on September 1st.
EDIT 7:23 PM — Ebscohost is working now. Please call the circulation desk at 504-568-6100 if you continue to have connection issues.
Ebscohost is currently experiencing a problem. If you are tyring to access nursing journals or databases such as CINAHLPlus with full text, they are unavailable.
Try these nursing databases instead:
Nursing and Allied Health Source
Both are available on the ‘N’ page of our Online Resources: http://www.lsuhsc.edu/no/library/ss&d/alpha/n.html
We have been reassured that service to Ebsco will be restored shortly.
