April Faculty Publications

A new selection of articles have been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight 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. Each month the Library is proud to present copies of eight of these publications in a rotating display of 16. With the currently changes, we’ve decided to post the publications digitally. Check out the display below:

Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMedSCOPUS, 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.

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  In some instances we have acquired the newer editions, as older editions were not available or just too out of date.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.

Libraries to Remain Open

As of this moment, the Libraries (both Isché and Dental) plan to maintain their regular hours.

We ask that our patrons follow the CDC Guidelines on preventing illness.

Power is out in the Resource Center Building so there is no telephone/chat access to the Ische Library. It is unknown when access will be restored.

*update* The Nursing/Allied Health Building and Parking Garage are also on emergency power. Entergy is estimating a noon restoration.

Graduate Research Day

The School of Medicine Librarian Liaison, Kathy Kerdolff recently attended Graduate Studies Research Day. Here’s what Kathy had to say about the event:

“I was so impressed with all these young researchers who patiently explained their research (displayed on their posters) with enthusiasm.

The things I learned:

  • The number of patients going to the ER (in Arkansas) for a non-traumatic dental visit/emergency.
  • NSAID sulindac sulfide as a possible cancer tumor reduction therapy.
  • A RCT to see if a WeChat (Social media in China) intervention would help reduce smoking in Chinese smokers.
  • Statistics on pancreatic cancer by sub-sites and mortality.
  • A novel NSC (neural stem cells) as possible treatment in triple negative breast cancer cells.
  • Binge alcohol levels are higher in HIV (Study used SIV and macaques) to see why HIV patients misuse Alcohol more than non-HIV patients.
  • Glioblastoma Multiforme experimental therapies.
  • Research testing renal cell carcinoma tumors.
  • Alcohol hyperpermeability of lymphatic endomethial cells.
  • Therapeutic potential for Hunnington’s disease and others like it.
  • Incidence of esophageal and gastric carcinomas among various populations. “

Below you will find pictures Kathy took of the researches and their posters:
