With the start of the new semester and the welcoming of new and returning students, we’d like to share a tip that will hopefully make getting your daily work done much easier. When on campus, please make sure to choose LSUHSC-Secure as the WiFi network.
If you somehow connect to Eduroam, LSUHSC-Visitor, or any of the other available networks, you will not be able to access Library resources easily nor print to the PayPaw system. You can also ensure you do not connect to any of these networks by unchecking “Connect automatically” if it is selected.
For those using Macs, you can set LSUHSC-Secure as your preferred network.
UPDATE July 1, 2022: As of early this morning, the problem was fixed and the Library Catalog, logging in with a barcode and PIN, and the link resolver are all working as expected. If you have any trouble or need assistance, please contact us.
ORIGINAL POST June 30, 2022: Due to a problem with our hosting company, the Library Catalog/INNOPAC is currently not available. This outage also affects logging in with a barcode and PIN via EZproxy, as well as some functionality of our link resolver.
This is affecting all customers, and we will update once we have more information.
UPDATE: INNOPAC is back up and running as of 1pm, October 19, 2021. If you encounter any issues, though, please contact us.
At 9am on Tuesday, October 19, 2021, INNOPAC, the Library’s online catalog will not be available for at least six hours. During this time you will also not be able to log into EZproxy using your Library barcode and PIN. The WebBridge Link Resolver is affected by this outage as well.
The Isché Library has a new Microfiche/Microfilm scanner available for use. It is housed on the 3rd floor near the circulation desk. Material can be scanned to a thumb drive or printed. There is no charge for printing. Please ask at the Circulation Desk for assistance.
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.
If you need help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.
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.
