Brew some coffee and let’s get started!
A new coffee vending machine has been installed in the Isché Library Commons! When the need to refuel while studying strikes, just go to the 3rd floor Library Commons for a cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate.
Don’t forget that the Commons are open 24/7!
Coffee is $.75, and everything else is $1.00 (tea, hot chocolate, latte, etc.). The machines take cash only (no PayPaw).
The Isché Library welcomes John P. Bourgeois, a new librarian in the Reference Department. He started on December 1, 2016.
John holds a Master of Library and Information Science from LSU in Baton Rouge and a Master of Public Health from Tulane University. John has worked at Tulane and Harvard in their Schools of Public Health, and he is coming to us from Nicholls State University in Thibodaux where he was a Research Librarian and head of Access Services.
Please join us in welcoming him to LSU Health. If you are in the library, stop to say hello and meet John!
On Wednesday October 19th & Thursday October 20th, from 8 AM to 4 PM, routine testing of the waterless fire suppression system will be taking place in the library rare books room, on the 4th floor of the Resource Center Building.
Announcements will be made throughout testing to let building occupants know that these systems are being tested and that evacuation will not be necessary.
Testing will involve periodically activating fire alarm strobe lights and audible alarms (speakers and horns) on the floors being tested. When all testing has concluded, an announcement will be made so that all occupants will know that the testing is complete.
Thank you for your patience.

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.
