Now that we have survived the tenth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, we are want to spotlight Faculty Publications about the more long-term effects of the storm and its impact on our schools, hospitals, and community. While the August display focused primarily on the immediate and short term effects, we now would like to turn the spotlight on the lessons we have learned in the wake of the catastrophe. After reviewing the scores of articles published by our faculty and researchers, we have selected 24 articles, representing all of our schools, that we feel will give the best overview of the resurgence of our research community and the community we serve.
These articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. They can be viewed in the Reference area, on the wall between the main entrance and the Library elevator, on the third floor of the Resource Center Building.

In October we will resume our regular presentation of recent faculty publications.
Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMed, SCOPUS, and CINAHL, to name a few. In addition to articles they include books, book chapters, papers, editorials, letters to the editor, and meeting abstracts, all authored by at least one member of the LSUHSC-NO community. The database is maintained by Reference Librarian Kathy Kerdolff and is available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage. For a PDF of a bibliography of this month’s articles, click here. If you have an article you would like us to highlight or if you have any questions regarding the display or the database, you can contact Kathy Kerdolff.
Please come to the Library and view these publications by our research community.
