OpenAthens off-campus log in now available!

We are happy to announce that the Libraries now offer OpenAthens as an alternate way to get to resources when off-campus. With OpenAthens you can use your LSUHSC-NO e-mail address and current password to log in.

This new way to log in works with all Library resources. You will probably first see the option when going through a link from the Library’s web page or the Library catalog. The EZproxy log in page has changed to provide the ability to use OpenAthens:

From there you will see the LSU Health New Orleans log in page that you may be familiar with from webmail or Office 365:

Be sure to enter your complete LSUHSC-NO e-mail address (including the @lsuhsc.edu). Once you’ve done this, you will be logged into both the OpenAthens and EZproxy systems, so any Library link you follow that requires off-campus authentication should work with no trouble.

Another feature of OpenAthens is the ability to log in directly at a number of database, ebook, and journal sites. We’ve noticed that many of you have already discovered this option, but one thing to keep in mind is that not all publishers or sites support logging in through OpenAthens. We have a list of sites that support OpenAthens here.

If you have trouble using Library resources with OpenAthens, you may be having issues with your LSUHSC-NO password and/or account. You can use the LSUHSC-NO password change page or you may need to contact the Help Desk or your local computer supporter if you need more assistance with your account.

EZproxy is still available as a way to use Library resources. If you are affiliated with LSU Health New Orleans but are not assigned an LSUHSC-NO e-mail address, you may still be eligible for Library privileges. In those cases, you will need to use a Library-issued barcode and your PIN to use our resources.

More information about logging in off-campus is available via our new Off-Campus page: https://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/offcampus.aspx. There is also a new OpenAthens LibGuide that provides more information about this service: https://libguides.lsuhsc.edu/openathens.

For those who are in the hospitals and clinics, we understand that you deal with more hurdles than anyone, and OpenAthens may make your search for and use of resources a little easier. One example of this may be if you are having troubles accessing an article, it might be easier to log in at the journal’s site (if it supports OpenAthens) and get the article in a more direct way.

If you need any help with this new service or any other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us.

LSUHSC-Secure and UMC

If you are at UMC, please be advised that the LSUHSC-Secure network there is not the same as the LSUHSC-Secure that is available in the Health Sciences Center’s facilities.

UMC LSUHSC-Secure is not part of our network. If you attempt to access Library resources when on this network, you may have problems due to the restrictions placed on it. Additionally, since it is not part of our campus, you will not be authenticated as one of our users and will be unable to get to any of the Library’s subscribed resources.

We recommend using Citrix if you want to access Library resources when at UMC or any of the other hospitals and clinics. You may be asked to log in using your Library barcode and PIN, but the benefit is that you should not run into any issues with authenticating as one of our users.

If you need any other assistance with Library resources, please contact us.

Power outage-9/17 (restored)

*EDIT* Power was restored to the downtown campus at 10:41am.

While the power is out on the downtown campus, chat and phone service for the Library is also not available. The Library is still open, but there is no air conditioning nor access via the elevators, and the only lights available are emergency and lights from the windows. LSUHSC-Secure is still available as of now, so there is an Internet connection.

ProQuest 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:
To maintain the currency and security of ProQuest products, we are performing maintenance on many ProQuest products beginning on August 18, 2018 U.S. Eastern Time.

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.

Downtime for Web of Science

Due to scheduled maintenance, Web of Science may be unavailable from 7 pm on Saturday, June 2nd, until 7 pm on Sunday, June 3rd. Their site says that access may be intermittent during this block of time. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest you plan your research schedule according. Or better yet, just enjoy an evening off. You’ve earned it!

Revamped Database Pages Now Live

In conjunction with our rolling out EZproxy as the new off-campus authentication system, the Libraries have made some changes to our resources available through the Database listings on our web page:

New Database Overview

You will find there is now one link for both on- and off-campus access to resources. A new paw icon also identifies those resources where you will need to use your Library barcode and PIN in order access them when off-campus:

New Databases Closer

If you need more information about accessing resources when off-campus, please take a look at our newest LibGuide.

Have any questions about this or any other Library resources? Please contact us.

Introducing EZproxy for off-campus access

Starting today (November 15th), the Libraries will start transitioning to our new off-campus authentication system. We are moving away from WAM and will start using EZproxy. Many of you may already be familiar with EZproxy as it is used in most institutions throughout the state and the U.S.

The biggest change you will see is now being asked to provide just your Library barcode and PIN when accessing resources off campus:

EZproxy Login

If you currently have a Library account and PIN, you can log into EZproxy with no problems.

If you have a Library account but have not assigned a PIN, there is a link on the EZproxy login page that will direct you to create one. Also, a handout walking you through creating a PIN when accessing resources through EZproxy is now available.

During this transition time, you may still encounter links asking you to log into the WAM system. These will eventually be replaced with EZproxy, but it will take some time for us to edit everything.

A new LibGuide with information about accessing Library resources off-campus is also now available via this link.

If you have any questions about this or anything else, please contact us.
