Oxford journals available on-campus only

We are currently having trouble with off-campus access and journals we receive from Oxford University Press, so these titles will be available on-campus only until the problem is fixed. You will see a note indicating on-campus only restrictions for these journals displayed in links from the Library Catalog, A to Z List, and link resolver. As soon as the issue is resolved, we will restore off-campus access.

If you need assistance when off-campus in retrieving articles from Oxford journals, please contact us.

Prosthetics & orthotics in clinical practice, more access available!

pocp-may-bookProsthetics & orthotics in clinical practice, by Bella J. May, is now available online through the EBSCOhost eBooks platform, as well as through the R2 Digital Library.  The Library was able to purchase multiple-user access through EBSCO, so now more than one user can access the book at the same time.  Our R2 Digital Library access for this book allows for one user at a time.

This book is a required course for PHTH 7234 – Prosthetics and Orthotics in Physical Therapy.  We hope this additional access will be helpful!

Both platforms offer a variety of options for saving and printing content.

February Spotlight on Faculty Publications

Tiger heart - vhA new selection of articles has been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. Each month the Library is proud to present copies of eight of these publications in a rotating display of 16. They can be viewed in the Reference area, on the wall between the main entrance and the Library elevator, on the third floor of the Resource Center Building.

In addition to articles they include books, book chapters, papers, editorials, letters to the editor, and meeting abstracts, all authored by at least one member of the LSUHSC-NO community. The database is maintained by Reference Librarian Kathy Kerdolff and is available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage.

UPDATE: This problem has been fixed, 2/3/2017.  Thanks for your patience!

ProQuest Product Maintenance This Weekend

Attention Weekend Research Warriors! ProQuest will be taking down their site for product maintenance this weekend. This will affect our access of their database Saturday night beginning at 9pm until Sunday morning at about 5am. Of course these times may vary slightly as with any database maintenance. Hopefully the upgrades will run smoothly and we will be up and running for our Sunday warriors.

The notice from ProQuest:
Over the weekend of Saturday-Sunday, 28-29 Jan. 2017, a ProQuest product maintenance window will launch worldwide to upgrade infrastructure, enhance security, and maintain reliability of your products.

During this 8-hour window, some ProQuest products will be unavailable. While the date and time were chosen to minimize the impact on our customers, we realize that some users may be affected, and we apologize for the inconvenience. Additionally, web-based customer access will be redirected to a webpage stating the planned maintenance times.

The following ProQuest products will be temporarily offline:

Research databases

  • ProQuest platform (search.proquest.com)

Dissertation publishing

  • ProQuest/UMI ETD Administrator

Reference management/Research support tools

  • RefWorks

We would like to add our apologies, as well, and hope that your research efforts will not be adversely impacted.

New Year, New Books!

The Isché Library is starting 2017 by featuring new books and E-books! Some of these books are required for Spring 2017 classes, so come and see if one of your textbooks is on display.
The display is located near the 3rd floor elevator. Subjects include nursing research & theory, physiopathology, genetics, data systems, rehabilitation, neuroscience, orthopedics, and more.

These books and many more are available for checkout or online access. If you have questions about checking out a book or accessing an E-book, do not hesitate to ask a library staff member.

FIXED! Thieme E-Book Library problems

UPDATE: This problem has been fixed, 2/16/2017.  The Thieme E-Book Library titles can be accessed on or off-campus through the INNOPAC catalog.  Thanks for your patience!

The Thieme E-Book Library is not working properly through our library catalog, INNOPAC.  The books can still be accessed on campus directly through the Thieme E-Book Library platform: https://ebooks.thieme.com/bookshelf or off campus through CITRIX.  Books can be read online or downloaded for offline use via iPublishCentral Reader, which is available on the Thieme E-Book Library website.  We are currently updating the links in our catalog and working with the publisher to fix this problem.

New BrowZine Features

BrowZine recently rolled out two new features that supplement the ability to find journals on your favorite topics and also to save articles you’d like to read later.

When you search or browse for a title and/or subject, you will now see a link to journals that although not available to view or manage through BrowZine, are available via the Library’s E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List. These additional titles are available under the heading “Journals available outside of BrowZine” as shown below:

BZ Outside Links

You will not be able to add these titles to your BrowZine bookshelf, but they may be helpful when you’re looking for journals that pique your interest.

A second new feature just rolled out is called “My Articles.” This is new to the web version of BrowZine, and builds upon an option available in the mobile version of the service. A walkthrough about this new feature, including limitations for offline browsing, is available on the About My Articles page on the BrowZine Support site.

If you need any help with BrowZine or any other Library resources, be sure to contact us.

Temporary link resolver for PubMed

The problem with PubMed and the WebBridge Link Resolver is still ongoing, so a new service is in use as a temporary alternative to bring link resolver features to PubMed. When you click on our “Check Full Text” icon in PubMed, a screen similar to the following listing any potential sources to get to the article you need is displayed:

ftf-page

This temporary option uses the coverage information from our E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List. Although it covers many of the journals we receive, it does not include all of our subscribed titles nor our print holdings. Regardless of whether an online source is found for the article, each page will provide a link to the Library’s Catalog so that you can also check there to see if we have that particular journal in print or online.

We are still hoping for a fix so that we can return to using the WebBridge Link Resolver in PubMed, and we apologize for any troubles this temporary change in service has and continues to cause. If you need assistance with this or any other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Libraries Closed on MLK Jr Day

Both the Dental and Isché Libraries will be closed in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr Day on Monday, January 16th. The Libraries will be open their regular hours over the weekend.

Hanna Kwasik retires from the Libraries

hannaHanna Kwasik, Head-Cataloging and Serials, retired from the Libraries on December 31, 2016. After working at the Earl K. Long Library at the University of New Orleans, Hanna joined the staff of the Isché Library in September 1999 as Serials Librarian. During her time at LSUHSC, Hanna guided the Libraries’ transition from predominantly print to electronic resources. Of note was that during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, she helped to ensure that LSUHSC patrons were able to access Library resources while spread throughout the state by transforming the journal collection to online-only almost overnight. Hanna has served as a mentor and friend to her many coworkers and colleagues throughout Louisiana and the region.

Hanna is also an avid and award-winning photographer. In 2014, her photo of an assassin bug and hibiscus plant received a second-place commendation in the Times-Picayune Garden Photo Contest. Her photo “Gondola Ride Under the Clouds” received the first-place award in the recreation-sports category for the Advocate’s “Heart of City Park” photo contest. In addition, her photo of violets was featured in the 2014 LSU Ag Center calendar.

Although we will miss her tremendously, we all wish Hanna much happiness and joy and she embarks on this new chapter in her life.
