Notice regarding alumni access to Library resources

We have received reports that alumni are being informed they can access Library resources online once they receive an alumni email account. This is incorrect. Alumni do not have access to the Library’s online resources and subscriptions.

Alumni who have been issued an alumni email cannot access Library resources due to licensing restrictions.

If you need any more information or have any questions, please contact us.

UPDATE: Catalog/INNOPAC slowness

UPDATE: The problem has been resolved and the catalog is back up and running as usual.

Thursday, December 14, 2023: After an outage earlier this morning, we are experiencing slowness with the Library Catalog/INNOPAC. We have reported the issue to the vendor, and will update when we have more information.

In the meantime, you can search for the majority of the books and journals we have online through the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List, or contact us if you need any assistance.

WiFi networks in the Library

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.

If you need assistance, please contact us.
