The National Library of Medicine’s traveling exhibit “Physician Assistants: Collaboration and Care” is now at the LSUHSC-NO Isché Library. The display will be set up in the Library Commons on the third floor of the Resource Center until February 28.

Physician Assistants are nationally certified professionals who evaluate, diagnose, treat, and care for patients, with physician supervision. This exhibit covers the history of the PA profession, the profession’s emphasis on diversity, and the many ways in which PAs care for patients in the United States and across the globe.

Ische Library Closed – September 20th

University Facilities sent out the following email at 1:30 pm today:

On Saturday, September 20th, from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM, there will be a complete air conditioning outage in the Allied Health/Nursing Building, Clinical Sciences Research Building, Lions/LSU Clinics Building, Medical Education Building and the Resource Center Building.  With the exception of the Animal Care spaces, there will not be any air conditioning anywhere in these buildings during this outage.  Walk-in coolers will not be affected but limited access to any refrigeration units is recommended due to higher indoor air temperatures. This outage is necessary for a contractor to replace a large failing chilled water isolation valve in the Central Plant.  This valve must be replaced as soon as possible.  Further delay may result in total failure and an extended loss of air conditioning during regular weekday hours.

Because of the a/c shutdown both the Isché Library and the Library Commons will be closed on Saturday.

The Isché Library will reopen at 1:30 pm on Sunday, September 21st.
