If you use any of the ProQuest Databases (Nursing & Allied Health Database, Dissertations & Theses, etc.) off campus, you have probably encountered a problem when you attempt to export or email citations. Proquest requires you to complete a ReCAPTCHA challenge but it cannot be accomplished through our off campus access.
You must create a “My Research” account in ProQuest in order to email or export from the databases while off campus. Creating the account is very easy – only one step. You can even link your RefWorks account to your My Research account for even easier citation exports.
If you’re having trouble accessing the videos for NURS 7706, especially when off campus, this might help:
Copy the link to the video you want and paste it in the address bar in a new window in your browser
Copy this phrase: https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=
Paste that phrase in front of the link to the video you put in the address bar in the other tab in your browser; the new link should look something like https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=https://accessmedicine.mhmedical.com/…
Hit Enter or Return
Hopefully this will prompt you to log in when needed if off campus.

We have been alerted of a planned RefWorks update on Saturday, May 9th, 2020, starting at 9:00 PM. The update will last for up to 12 hours, and it will affect Legacy RefWorks and (new) RefWorks, RefWorks Citation Manager and Write-n-Cite will be unavailable as well.
Due to current restrictions and recommendations, we are doing our best to add online access to our print books wherever possible. In some instances we have acquired the newer editions, as older editions were not available or just too out of date.
Unfortunately, many publishers do not sell their online books to institutions and libraries, preferring students and instructors coordinate access directly through them. Some of those ebooks are available for sale through ebook sellers such as RedShelf and VitalSource, both of which are offering special access during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Please let us know if there is something in particular that you need us to try to acquire, and we will research the availability for institutional access. More information and contact information can be found here: https://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/services/colldev.aspx.
If you are attempting to use any Library resources such as ebooks, journals, or databases, and have gone in through Citrix, you may wonder why you are are being asked to pay or you’re seeing something saying you need a subscription.
Even though you are in Citrix, you may still have to prove to publishers that you have permission to access the resources. Unfortunately, Citrix doesn’t always send that information along, so it’s important you use a link from the Library’s site or create one in order to guarantee you can get to what you should.
One key thing to look for is whether the link you’re following has “ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu” anywhere. If it does, then you’re good to go! If it does not, you may not be able to get to the resource you need. You can fix this, however, by running the link to the resource you need through our magical off campus link maker available here: https://libguides.lsuhsc.edu/openathens/offcampuslink. Then follow these instructions:

If you tried to log in today to any Library resources from off campus, you will hopefully have noticed that the page looks a little different:
The link to log in via OpenAthens using your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password is more prominent. If you would prefer to log in using your Library barcode and PIN, click the green bar to expand that option:
If you need help with changing your password, PIN, or anything else, click on the blue Help bar and various options for assistance will appear:
