Interested in publishing? The Association of Schools of Public Health recently announced that it will begin a peer-reviewed Student Column in the Public Health Reports journal.
Potential submitters may be current students, current fellows, or recent graduates (within two years) of CEPH-accredited schools of public health. ASPH also seeks student reviewers for the column. For more information, visit www.publichealthreports.org.
The Electronic Links in the catalog, INNOPAC, are working on-campus only. We are still working on off-campus access
Most of the E-Journal & E-Book Links in the catalog are still not working today. We are working with our support team to get the links working again. We hope to have them back up by mid-day today.
The libraries’ online catalog will be down for the next 2 hours for scheduled maintenance. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Molly Knapp has completed a Windows Media Video tutorial for accessing full-text journals via the Libraries’ catalog, Innopac. Don’t forget there is also a video for accessing materials remotely.
We’re happy to report that Wiley and Blackwell journals are now back online after this weekend’s downtime. The most significant change you’ll notice is that the online versions of the Blackwell titles look like those from Wiley as they are all now available on the Interscience platform. There are a handful of titles that are experiencing some hiccups, but we’ve been assured by the folks at Wiley that they are feverishly working on solving the problems.
If you need any help with these or other titles, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Wiley and Blackwell-Synergy journals will not be available this weekend, June 28-29. The Blackwell journals are moving to the Wiley Interscience site, with all content scheduled to be available by Monday, June 30. Unfortunately, we are unable to give specific times as to when this process will begin and when the journals will again be available.
We will keep you updated on any problems that might arise from this transition.
We’re happy to announce that we’ve finally launched a new component to INNOPAC, the library’s catalog. You’ll probably first notice that the link or links to the online version of a journal title are now available in two places:
The links under the “This title is available electronically via” area are part of a new product we’re using to manage our ever-increasing electronic access to journals. Eventually we will remove the pre-existing links used to get to the online versions, but rest assured the links and notes in this new addition to our catalog work the same.
We hope that you will spend some time exploring this new feature, but please do not hesitate to contact any of the Library staff if you need assistance.

“NATURE! We are surrounded and embraced by her: powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her.” – JW Goethe
So opened one of the foremost science journals in history. Even back in 1869, Nature: the international weekly journal of science was pondering topics like science education in schools, the impact of environmental projects such as the Suez Canal, and recent solar eclipses.
Now that LSUHSC library has online full-text access to Nature from 1869 – present, you yourself can trace historic scientific events as they unfold in the biomedical literature, all from the comfort of your office or home computer!
