Funding Databases

Thanks to other groups on campus, the Libraries have created pages for 2 funding sources available to all LSUHSC faculty, staff and students.

Grant Forward is the newly revised IRIS database and is provided by the LSUHSC New Orleans Office of Research Services.

SciVal Funding allows searching in the US and abroad and is provided by the Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center Office of Grants and Development.

Both databases are available on and off campus with the Libraries’ WAM access.

uTip: Text Emergency Alert System

This week, LSU Health Sciences Center introduced an emergency reporting service that will allow faculty, staff, and students to send text messages to University Police in order to facilitate the reporting of crime, to help prevent crime, and to allow police faster and more accurate information.

Subscription and registration with campus emergency alerts is not necessary. Users can simply send a message to 50911 with a text beginning “LSUHSC” in order to notify University Police of emergencies, crimes, and suspicious activities or persons in the area. Normal text message rates assigned by cell phone providers will apply.

Users may also contact University Police with non-emergency information at 568-8270 or via online message at http://www.is.lsuhsc.edu/police/response.htm.

The graphic below provides more detailed information about this service from http://www.lsuhsc.edu/alerts/utip.aspx.

TO SEND A TIP

  1. TEXT 50911 and begin your message with LSUHSC

    • University Police will not be notified If your text does not begin with LSUHSC
