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.

UPDATE: Library Catalog now available

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.

ProQuest email / export problem

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.

“Using Library Materials in Online Courses” – New Subject Guide

The Library has made a new subject guide meant to help online instructors use library materials in their classes.
More information and the subject guide can be found HERE.

Links to videos for NURS 7706

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.

Tips for off campus access to online resources

Many publishers are adding alternatives to access online resources, and we just want to provide a few tips to help you figure all of this out:

  • To log into electronic resources off campus, you can use either your LSU Health New Orleans full e-mail address and password or a Library barcode and PIN
  • All links to resources on the Library’s site are formatted to ask you to log in when needed; this is the preferred way to get to all of our resources
  • Many of our online resources support logging in directly at the site using OpenAthens; a list of OpenAthens-native resources is available here
  • Some publishers are now offering alternate ways to verify you have access to their content
    • If you are asked to select a federation to find an institution please remember we are part of the OpenAthens Federation
      • We are listed as LSU Health Sciences Center Library with OpenAthens
  • If you are searching for articles, LibKey Nomad is a tremendous help to get you to both subscribed and free articles
    • It works with many publishers’ sites and makes getting to articles from PubMed very easy
    • It will ask you to log in when you needed to access articles
    • More information can be found on the LibKey Nomad section of our BrowZine LibGuide

We are here to help you navigate the often confusing world of electronic resources, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you need any help!

New EBooks Available

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.

Recently added titles:

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.
