The Libraries will be closed Friday – Sunday, July 3rd – 5th for the Independence Day Holiday. Also on Thursday, July 2nd, the Dental Library will close at 5 pm  and the Isché Library will close at 6 pm.


*EDIT* And the server came back online at 3:35pm

INNOPAC is currently down due to a system upgrade. It should be back up shortly.


New NLM Medical Device Database in Beta




The National Library of Medicine has launched a medical device database, AccessGUDID, currently in beta. Searching is by device name, identification number or manufacturer. They are seeking input from users on ways to improve the database.


*Edit* INNOPAC was restored about 5:30 pm

While many of the network issues that occurred this morning have been resolved, unfortunately INNOPAC has not been restored to service.

We do not have an estimated time when it will be restored.

Network Issues

The Network Center in Baton Rouge unexpectedly lost power around 7:30 am this morning. Systems have been slowly coming back online as the IT department finds alternatives. Full power will not be restored until the end of the day (fingers crossed).

At this moment, we do not have access to our online catalog, INNOPAC, but the Libraries’ webpages have been restored. Please contact us for work arounds.

Our chat and email services do seem to be back up. And telephone service was unaffected.

PayPaw Services Scheduled Maintenance

PayPaw will be down for most of Thursday, May 14th for scheduled maintenance. All printers and photocopiers will be inoperable during this window. This outage will be campus-wide.

Jazz Fest Parking at the Dental School

In case you missed the email from J. Pegues, Vice Chancellor for Administration:

The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival will be held at the New Orleans Fairgrounds this weekend (24 – 26 April) and next week (30 April – 03 May).   Dean Henry Gremillion, DDS, has kindly extended an invitation to LSU Health New Orleans faculty, staff, and students to park at the Dental School, space permitting, with their LSUHSC IDs and parking gate cards.  University Police will accommodate entering and exiting through the Tensas Street Gate (the back walk-thru gate) on the above-referenced dates until 7:30 P.M. each day.  After 7:30 P.M., entering and exiting at the Tensas Street Gate will be via swiping your LSUHSC ID.  Access will also be available through the Florida Avenue drive-in.  All LSUHSC rules and regulations remain in effect regarding proper use and care of our campus properties and facilities.  Please see Chief William Joseph for any other questions.

Have you heard about the campus-wide Quality Enhancement Plan for 2015 which is part of the SACs Accreditation process? It focuses on InterProfessional Education.

One of the students on the committee came up with a host of images, including a bunch that use popular memes, for the project. Head over the Isché Facebook page to check out all the images.

Natural Medicines aka Natural Standard



Natural Medicines is the new name of the Natural Standard database. Natural Medicines is an authoritative resource on dietary supplements, natural medicines, and complementary alternative and integrative therapies. Access is available on and off campus.

The Isché Library internal elevator is out of order. And will remain out of order indefinitely while a part is ordered. Access to the 4th and 5th floors of the Library are via the staircase or the freight elevator with a staff escort. Check with the Circulation Desk for more information.

*Edit* 2/20/15 3:45 pm – And the elevator is back in action!
