Update, 11/9/2021: EBSCO has resolved issues with their platform. If you continue to experience problems please contact the library: firstname.lastname@example.org.
EBSCO has reported problems with multiple products including our EBSCO Discovery search system and EBSCO eBooks collections. They are working to resolve the issues. We will update the blog once everything is back to normal.
The Library will not renew our institutional subscription to Read by QxMD, so you may see reduced functionality starting in June. You will still be able to set subject alerts and share articles, but getting to full text will be slightly more difficult.
If an article is available for free, you will be able to access it with no trouble. However, if a subscription is required to view the full text, you may be asked to log in. Please remember that the Library is a member of the OpenAthens federation, so you will be able to use your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password to log in to publishers who support that option.
We are still maintaining full access to BrowZine, and it can also be accessed via desktop or mobile applications.
If you have any questions about this or any other Library services, please contact us.
Thieme has resolved issues with off-campus access to Thieme MedOne Education and the Q&A module for histology.
Let us know if you continue to experience technical difficulties with any Thieme product.

There is a workaround though, so please see below for the best way to access this resource. MedOne Education is a collection of over 100 basic and clinical science ebooks in subjects like anatomy, biochemistry, dentistry, immunology, microbiology, neuroscience, otorhinolaryngology, physical therapy, and more. There is also a new Q&A module for histology. Check it out if you haven’t already.
A new, counseling text line is now available to provide free, confidential, 24/7 support for people in crisis. All someone has to do is text REACHOUT (all caps together) to 741741 to connect to a trained crisis counselor who will help individuals de-escalate, identify coping strategies and who will use active listening techniques.
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.
A new selection of articles have been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. Each month the Library is proud to present copies of eight of these publications in a rotating display of 16. With the currently changes, we’ve decided to post the publications digitally. Check out the display below:
Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMed, SCOPUS, and CINAHL, to name a few. In addition to articles they include books, book chapters, papers, editorials, letters to the editor, and meeting abstracts, all authored by at least one member of the LSUHSC-NO community. The database is maintained by Reference Librarian Kathy Kerdolff and is available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage. For a PDF of a bibliography of this month’s additions,click here. If you have an article you would like us to highlight or if you have any questions regarding the display or the database, you can contact Kathy Kerdolff.

LWW also opened up a few extra collections during the CovID-19 outbreak. We have extra access to the following collections through May 19th: Clerkship/Clinical Rotations, PA Rotations and Specialties, and Exercise Science. We will blog more about those and a few other things as soon as the details are wrapped up. Thanks to Ovid/LWW for offering us those extended trials during this challenging time.
LWW Health Library is having technical difficulties. They are working to resolve our access issues. I will update the blog with more information as it becomes available.

We would like to add our apologies, as well, and hope that your research efforts will not be adversely impacted.
We have added full support of Read by QxMD so you will now be able to link directly from article abstracts to the full-text of the article if the Library has a subscription.
You can access Read by QxMD on your computer by going to https://www.readbyqxmd.com/. Mobile apps are available through the appropriate Android and Apple app stores.
You will need to create an account in order to link to our journals. When you are setting up your account, be sure to choose “Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans” as your home institution. You can then choose whether you would like to be prompted to log in each time you need to retrieve an article, or to have your credentials automatically sent. If you choose the automatic login option, you will need to enter your Library barcode and PIN.
We hope this new addition will make your journal browsing easier and more robust, but if you have any questions please contact us.
