Web of Science Cancelled

Reposting from December 14th since we’ve been receiving phone calls & emails about this service:

Web of Science cancellation effective January 1, 2016

Due to the rising costs of online health sciences resources, the Library is cancelling Web of Science – Web of Knowledge effective January 1, 2016.  This includes Science and Social Sciences Citation Indexes, Journal Citation Reports, and EndNote Basic.

The Library will continue to subscribe to Scopus.  Scopus indexes peer-reviewed literature from scientific journals, books, and conference proceedings, and also provides the ability to track citations and analyze research.

Please contact your Librarian Liaison if you would like assistance with Scopus.

Welcome 2016

Update: Access Issue

UPDATE: Links to resources and databases are now working correctly, but until the main problem is solved we might still experience difficulties. If so, please use the solution outlined below in the interim.

We’re having issues with all full-text links from our Catalog and from the Link Resolver. Resources cannot be accessed. Patrons who are on-campus can access by stripping out the part of the URL which allows off-campus access. Remove the initial number and dash and .innopac.lsuhsc.edu, so:
http://0-jama.jamanetwork.com.innopac.lsuhsc.edu/issues.aspx becomes http://jama.jamanetwork.com/issues.aspx
Again, this only works on-campus.

We’re investigating if this is related to the campus wide internet crash this morning and hope to have it resolved quickly. Thanks for your patience.

ILLiad Upgrade

*Edit* the upgrade was complete before 10am!

New phone lines in the Ische Library

The Isché Library rolled out new VoiP telephones this morning. The difference should be seamless for library patrons but some staff members do have new telephone numbers. Carolyn Bridgewater can be found at 504-568-6104; Rita Premo‘s new number is 504-568-7717; and Valerie Hernandez now has 504-568-6107 as her number. All other staff telephone numbers are available.


The Library Catalog, INNOPAC, is currently acting a bit wonky. It seems to have lost the ability to distinguish between New Orleans and Shreveport. Customer Support is working on the problem.


*Edit* And all issues were resolved (#fingerscrossed) at 10:50am
