New Video on Finding Peer Reviewed Journal Articles

ebsco-ebooks-3

The Library is pleased to announce that we have received special funding from the Board of Regents e-Textbook Project, Affordable Learning LOUISiana, to purchase 2 required textbooks for Spring 2017:

Analyzing and conceptualizing the theoretical foundations of nursing by Janice Morse (2017) for NURS 7307 taught by Dr. Gloria Giarratano

Vestibular disorders: a case-study approach to diagnosis and treatment, 3rd ed., by Joseph Furman (2010) for SPTHAUD 7323 taught by Rachel Wood.

These books are available with unlimited users and can be accessed anytime and from anywhere (on or off campus) through the EBSCO eBook Collection.

Dr. Joseph C. Rallo, Commissioner of Higher Education, directed the Board of Regents to find ways that the state could help students with the increasing costs of education and, in particular, textbooks.  The Affordable Learning LOUISiana program is coordinated by LOUIS: the Louisiana Library Network, a consortium of higher education libraries in the state. Through LOUIS, member libraries can participate in a variety of collaborative purchases that help reduce the costs of library resources such as databases, online journals, and ebooks.  LSUHSC-NO has been a member library for many years, and we are grateful for the LOUIS staff and all of their efforts to help improve higher education in the state of Louisiana.

The Library has a large collection of ebooks through a variety of sources, so be sure to check the INNOPAC catalog and our eBooks LibGuide for more information.  For help with remote access, please consult our Off-Campus Access Information.

LSUHSC-NO Nursing School Ranks Among Top 10 in U.S!

The School of Nursing at LSUHSC New Orleans was ranked among the top ten schools in the United States in the inaugural rankings of Nursing Schools Almanac.

Our School of Nursing ranked ninth on the list of Top 100 nursing schools in the United States, second overall in the Southeast, and fifth among public nursing schools in the United States!

Nursing Schools Almanac’s mission is to provide an accurate, complete, and powerful online resource for aspiring nurses to make educational decisions.

Their research team collected data on more than 3,200 nursing schools and campuses throughout the United States and evaluated each school on three dimensions: the institution’s academic prestige and perceived value; the breadth and depth of nursing programs offered; and student success, particularly on the NCLEX national licensure exam.

Congratulations to the School of Nursing for standing out as a NLN Center of Excellence™ and sustaining an impressive pass rate of 95-98% on the NCLEX-RN exam over the past six years!

Mosby’s Nursing Consult upgrade January 1, 2016

CKN-snag

Mosby’s Nursing Consult is getting a face-lift AND a new name, ClinicalKey for Nursing!  Elsevier is upgrading its popular online nursing resource effective January 1, 2016.  Our staff is currently working with Elsevier on this transition, and we hope to have it all running smoothly for the start of the Spring semester.  We are almost up-and-running, but there are still some issues, primarily with the off-campus access.  We will share the news on the blog when everything is fixed.

The new platform includes most of the same content with some exceptions, particularly where outdated information is concerned.  You will find the same, great books and journals, including books such as “Goldman-Cecil Medicine,” “Harriet Lane Handbook,” and “Sheehy’s Emergency Nursing,” and journals like “Nurse Leader,” “Journal for Nurse Practitioners,” and “Nursing Clinics of North America.”  The journal coverage goes back to 2007 where available, and we do have some of the older coverage on the ScienceDirect platform.  As with Mosby’s Nursing Consult, the books are updated with newer editions as the they are released.  Be sure to check our INNOPAC library catalog for the most accurate record of what we have.

ClinicalKey for Nursing is also a Point-of-Care tool that is designed to help nurses find information quickly.  It includes over 1,500 drug monographs, 300 procedural videos, and 175 disease topic pages.

Please contact a reference librarian if you need assistance with ClinicalKey for Nursing.
