Medical Student Research Day a Huge Success

LSUHSC Medical Students who participated in the Summer Research Internship Program and learned laboratory and clinical research techniques used in medical research presented posters of their research results Friday, October 11th, 2019. Over the summer, students had been given instructions on how to write an abstract and were trained in presentation skills, including how to prepare and present their research results.  All the students were well prepared and stood by their posters ready to discuss, explain, or answer questions about their topics.

The 2019 winners of the Medical Student Research Day poster session are:

First Place (tie): 

  • Kyle LaPenna (Dr. Lefer):  “Development and Characterization of a Novel Small Animal Model of Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction”
  • Adrienne Murphy (Dr. Miele) “Targeting Notch signaling in Cancer Stem-Like Cells of Triple Negative Breast Cancer”

Second Place (tie):

  • John Valentino (Dr. Simkin/Dasa) “Is poor bone quality associated with pain after total knee arthroplasty?”

Third Place (tie):

  • Jake Doiron (Dr. Wojcik) “Identification of host cellular target of the Zika NS2b-NS3 protease”
  • Ahmad Karkoutli (Dr. Arriaga) “The relationship between NF-2 associated vestibular schwannoma tumor size and the degree of hearing impairment”

Citation Resolver added to Discovery

Do you have a DOI but can’t figure out how to get the article? Looking for a new way to find the article for a citation? We have some good news for you! A new tool has been added to the Discovery Service/EDS Health that will help you get those articles!

The new Citation Resolver is now available from our Discovery Service/EDS Health. Look for it on the top toolbar or under the search box:

Image showing Citation Resolver in Discovery service.

To start looking up a citation, click Citation Resolver and the search box will change:

Citation Resolver for EBSCO Discovery Service

Now you can enter a DOI, article title, an author’s last name with words from the title, and even PMIDs. Here’s an example of a search using a DOI:

Citation Resolver search for a DOI

Once Resolve Citation was clicked, the results displayed, and the first one was the article that was needed along with a link to get the PDF:

Citation Resolver DOI search results with link to article highlighted

In the above, you may have noticed the DOI search was actually changed to a search for the author and title of the article, so the Citation Resolver does all of that hard work for you!

Although the Citation Resolver is extremely powerful, you may encounter some instances where you may not see the results you want. If you run into any problems or need any other assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you’re using an iOS device, we have a walkthrough on how to install the Citrix Storefront app and use it to access your LSUHSC-NO Citrix Desktop. We’ve also created a short video showing how to log into Citrix on your mobile device in order to use Chrome and the LibKey Nomad extension.

AAO Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC) eBook collection maintenance

aao

The American Academy of Ophthalmology Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC) eBook collection is upgrading to a new version effective Monday, September 16th. Maintenance will begin the night before, Sunday, September 15th, starting at 9:30 PM (central time).

The functionality should stay the same, however there will be a few changes:

-The new site will only have the latest Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC) titles. The old editions will no longer be available.

-Personalized accounts, including bookmarks, highlights and notes created on the older titles can be accessed under the ‘My activity’ tab and downloaded as an excel file for the user’s reference.

-All books will be presented in chronological order of their publishing date.

If you experience problems accessing the collection, please contact the Collection Development Department.

LibKey Nomad now available!

We are happy to announce LibKey Nomad is now available! This Chrome extension (for the desktop version only) brings the Library’s journal holdings to you, guiding you to get the full-text of articles. It works both on- and off-campus, and hopefully it will become your go-to tool for getting articles.

First, start by downloading the extension from the Chrome Web Store. Then, when asked to select your institution, search for LSU and choose LSU Health Sciences Center:

Although we would prefer you follow links from the Library’s web site as it helps with making sure you are able to access the resources to which we subscribe, with LibKey Nomad you will now be able to go pretty much anywhere and get access to articles or see options for retrieving them on each page.

For example, if you go directly to ScienceDirect and locate an article you would like to read, you will see an icon on the lower right of the screen providing you with access options:

In this case, clicking on the Download PDF icon will bring you directly to the article. You will be asked to authenticate using either your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password or Library barcode and PIN if you had not done so already if off-campus, but you will not be asked to do so again for the rest of your session.

LibKey Nomad also brings increased and easier functionality to PubMed. Not only will you see journal covers bringing a bit more color to the results summary screen, you can now get to the article directly from the search results list! Look for the icons next to the citations:

Now you no longer have to go into the abstract view of each article to see the options you have to get the full-text!

These are just a few of the highlights of what LibKey Nomad can do. More information can be found on the LibKey Nomad page of our BrowZine LibGuide, or you can contact us for more help. We hope you will find this new tool helpful for your research needs, so please download it and give it a try!
