EBSCO eBook technical difficulties

EBSCO is experiencing technical difficulties with the eBook collection. If you find that you are having trouble, try using Google Chrome for your browser. The EPUB Full Text book reader seems to be more reliable, so if you have a choice between PDF Full Text and EPUB, choose EPUB.
Thank you for your patience.

FIXED! AccessMedicine searching problems

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

AccessMedicine keyword searching is currently not working correctly. We have contacted McGraw-Hill in regards to this problem and will post an update once this has been resolved. In the meantime, the auto-suggested terms are working. Books can be accessed directly through the “Books” tab. Keyword searching is working in our other McGraw-Hill products: AccessEmergency Medicine, AccessSurgery, HemOnc Collection, and Case Files Collection.

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.

Two course books added online!

ebsco-ebooks-3

The Library is pleased to announce that we have received special funding from the Board of Regents e-Textbook Project, Affordable Learning LOUISiana, to purchase 2 required textbooks for Spring 2017:

Analyzing and conceptualizing the theoretical foundations of nursing by Janice Morse (2017) for NURS 7307 taught by Dr. Gloria Giarratano

Vestibular disorders: a case-study approach to diagnosis and treatment, 3rd ed., by Joseph Furman (2010) for SPTHAUD 7323 taught by Rachel Wood.

These books are available with unlimited users and can be accessed anytime and from anywhere (on or off campus) through the EBSCO eBook Collection.

Dr. Joseph C. Rallo, Commissioner of Higher Education, directed the Board of Regents to find ways that the state could help students with the increasing costs of education and, in particular, textbooks.  The Affordable Learning LOUISiana program is coordinated by LOUIS: the Louisiana Library Network, a consortium of higher education libraries in the state. Through LOUIS, member libraries can participate in a variety of collaborative purchases that help reduce the costs of library resources such as databases, online journals, and ebooks.  LSUHSC-NO has been a member library for many years, and we are grateful for the LOUIS staff and all of their efforts to help improve higher education in the state of Louisiana.

The Library has a large collection of ebooks through a variety of sources, so be sure to check the INNOPAC catalog and our eBooks LibGuide for more information.  For help with remote access, please consult our Off-Campus Access Information.

 

Congratulations to Jennifer K. Lloyd!

scc-mla-logo

Congratulations to Jennifer K. Lloyd, our Assistant Director of Access Services! In October, Jennifer received the Distinguished Service Award (DSA) from the South Central Chapter of the Medical Library Association (SCC/MLA) during the chapter’s annual meeting in Galveston, TX. The DSA recognizes an individual’s long-term commitment to and promotion of the organization. Jennifer has been an active member of SCC since 1999. She has been consistently involved in the organization over the past 17 years, serving on and chairing almost every committee, presenting posters and papers, creating and maintaining the chapter’s Facebook page, mentoring new members, and volunteering to serve wherever needed without fail. She is probably best known in the group for her New Orleans’ hospitality. Her social and outgoing nature brings people together and gets the good times going. Everyone knows Jennifer, and everyone knows that she is always there to help and support the membership however she can. The DSA is the SCC’s highest honor, and Jennifer has rightfully earned it. Congratulations, Jennifer! We are so proud of you!

RefWorks

RefWorks is currently developing a new and improved version of itself referred to simply as the new RefWorks. At this time, the new RefWorks does not have all of the same functionality as the old RefWorks, which is now referred to as legacy RefWorks. As such, we will not be migrating our subscription to the new RefWorks until all of the kinks have been straightened out. If you are prompted with a choice between the legacy version (orange) and the new version (blue), please select the legacy version (orange).

We will let you know when the new version is ready for prime time. As always, if you need assistance, please feel free to contact us.

AccessMedicine upgrade, new products

AccessMedicineWe are pleased to announce that our AccessMedicine subscription has been upgraded to an institutional site license with no restrictions on the number of users.  That means no more lock-outs for AccessMedicine.  Many thanks are owed to the School of Medicine for contributing funds to support this upgrade.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

AccessMedicine is a dynamic resource that includes online textbooks, case studies, videos, drug monographs, USMLE review questions, diagnostic tools, and more.  The online book collection is very popular and it includes top titles such as Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, Dr. Michael Levitzky’s Pulmonary Physiology, Dr. Patricia Molina’s Endocrine Physiology, and the Current Diagnosis & Treatment series, just to name a few!

Custom-curriculum

As a bonus, we can now offer expanded access to the Custom Curriculum component of this resource.  Instructors can register their MyAccess profiles for the added capability of developing and managing interactive learning modules where they can assign readings, give quizzes, and track students’ progress.  See the Custom Curriculum web page for more information or contact the School of Medicine Librarian Liaison, Kathy Kerdolff, if you have any other questions.

Case-Files-Hem-Onc

Two new collections have been added to our arsenal as well:

AccessMedicine’s HemOnc Collection, which provides online access to top titles in Hematology and Oncology, and the Case Files Collection, which adds over 1,000 case files to our subscription.

AccessEM-Surg

We have also renewed AccessEmergency Medicine at a level of 3 concurrent users, and thanks to continued funding from the Department of Surgery, we are able to maintain our AccessSurgery subscription at a level of 10 concurrent users.  The Department of Surgery has been funding extra users on that subscription since 2008!  We couldn’t have done it without you either! To maximize the usefulness of those limited users, please remember to sign out when you are finished using those databases.

Access-sign-out

We hope you find all of these subscriptions useful in your teaching, education, and research!
