June 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 will be available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage.

Masks still required On Campus

Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of COVID-19 on the LSUHSC Campuses were updated today, March 17, 2021.

This guideline includes the following: Masks: LSUHSC requires that masks be worn properly (covering the nose and mouth) in all public settings on campus (unless one is eating).  The CDC and LSUHSC recommend that masks be worn at all times except while you are in your own home. For a guide of acceptable masks, please refer to this CDC document: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/about-face-coverings.html

We continue to have issues with mask noncompliance in the Libraries and would appreciate patron cooperation.

The Libraries will close at noon on Monday, February 15th due to weather conditions.

The Libraries are also already scheduled to be closed on Tuesday, February 16th for Mardi Gras in an LSU System-mandated holiday.
