Services for Dental Alumni and Dental Health Professionals


LSUSD alumni and all dental health professionals in Louisiana are invited to use the services of the LSU School of Dentistry Library, subject to the following rules:


  • Books must be checked out in person at the Library. A maximum of five books may be checked out at a time. If the books are overdue by thirteen days or more, all circulation privileges will be suspended until the late materials are returned.
  • Books may be renewed for two weeks. Renewal requests may be made in person, via phone, or via email to One renewal will be granted if no other patron is waiting for the book.
  • Books should be returned directly to the Dental Library.
  • Practitioners in Louisiana unable to visit the Library may borrow Dental Library books through the interlibrary loan service of their local public library.  LSUHSC Dental Library cannot mail books to individuals.

Journal Articles:

  • Practicing dental health professionals may not borrow journals from the Library. Online access to journal articles is available when physically in the Library. Printers and photocopiers are available for any printing or copying needs.
  • To request copies of articles, dental health practitioners must register for the Loansome Doc service. Contact the Library to request a Loansome Doc Agreement.  Once your Loansome Doc account is created, you can order documents electronically via PubMed.
