LSUHSC-New Orleans Launches New Graphic Medicine Collection

Comics aren’t just for teens! Graphic medicine explores healthcare and medicine while using the comic format as a medium for learning.

Graphic novels can be helpful tools for practitioners and patients to further the discussion about healthcare in the United States.  These books are in fact tools that help bridge the health literacy gap.

To highlight this genre, we have a variety of titles available for check out that explore Alzheimer ’s disease, disabilities, abuse, and mental disorders.

So, come by and check out our new books on the 3rd Floor!

New Video on Finding Peer Reviewed Journal Articles

If you are looking for articles for a paper and don’t know where to start, you want to learn how to use our Discovery search bar, or if you simply want a refresher, watch this short video!
