BoardVitals problems – some fixes in the works

BoardVitals has been working to resolve our registration issues. You do not have to use a special link to register anymore. You can register with your lsuhsc.edu email. All lsuhsc.edu users will now be added to the LSUHSC-New Orleans account. LSUHSC-Shreveport (aka LSU Health Shreveport) users should register with their new lsuhs.edu email to be registered under the Shreveport account. Our libraries are working to identify existing users that have been assigned to the wrong account, and we will try to correct those users as soon as possible.

RefWorks Down This Weekend

We have been alerted of a planned RefWorks update on Saturday, May 9th, 2020, starting at 9:00 PM. The update will last for up to 12 hours, and it will affect Legacy RefWorks and (new) RefWorks, RefWorks Citation Manager and Write-n-Cite will be unavailable as well.

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  In some instances we have acquired the newer editions, as older editions were not available or just too out of date.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