Due to scheduled maintenance, Web of Science may be unavailable from 7 pm on Saturday, June 2nd, until 7 pm on Sunday, June 3rd. Their site says that access may be intermittent during this block of time. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest you plan your research schedule according. Or better yet, just enjoy an evening off. You’ve earned it!
You will find there is now one link for both on- and off-campus access to resources. A new paw icon also identifies those resources where you will need to use your Library barcode and PIN in order access them when off-campus:
If you need more information about accessing resources when off-campus, please take a look at our newest LibGuide.
Have any questions about this or any other Library resources? Please contact us.
Starting today (November 15th), the Libraries will start transitioning to our new off-campus authentication system. We are moving away from WAM and will start using EZproxy. Many of you may already be familiar with EZproxy as it is used in most institutions throughout the state and the U.S.
The biggest change you will see is now being asked to provide just your Library barcode and PIN when accessing resources off campus:
If you currently have a Library account and PIN, you can log into EZproxy with no problems.
If you have a Library account but have not assigned a PIN, there is a link on the EZproxy login page that will direct you to create one. Also, a handout walking you through creating a PIN when accessing resources through EZproxy is now available.
During this transition time, you may still encounter links asking you to log into the WAM system. These will eventually be replaced with EZproxy, but it will take some time for us to edit everything.
A new LibGuide with information about accessing Library resources off-campus is also now available via this link.
If you have any questions about this or anything else, please contact us.
UPDATE: As of 3:30pm CDT, our issues with off-campus access to EBSCOhost have been resolved. You might need to clear your browser’s cache and history to recognize any changes, but please contact us if you are still having trouble.
While we are still waiting for our issues with off-campus access to some resources to be resolved, we have come up with a workaround for databases and books available through EBSCOhost.
When off-campus, click this link; you will be asked to enter your LSUHSC user i.d. and password. You will then be taken to this page that displays the i.d. and password that can be used to access EBSCOhost databases such as CINAHL and Academic Search Complete, EBSCO Ebooks, and the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, along with links to the appropriate sites:
Once you click on one of those links, you will see this login page:
Enter the User ID and Password as described on the “Password Protected Database” page, and you should then be able to access the resource you need. If you clicked the link for EBSCOhost, you will be taken to the following page where you can choose which database you would like to use:
Unfortunately, for our Baton Rouge LSUHSC/OLOL patrons, this workaround will not work while you are on the Baton Rouge campus. It will work, though, at any other location off-campus.
We do not have an estimate on when our off-campus issues will be resolved, but if you need any assistance in accessing this or any other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Wiley Online Library will be down for a few hours this weekend.
According to a message on their website, Wiley Online Library will be unavailable on Saturday, July 1st, from 2:00AM-8:00AM CDT and on Sunday, July 2nd, 2:00AM-5:00AM CDT for essential maintenance. We would like to join the fine folks at Wiley in extending our apologies for the inconvenience to our dedicated researchers burning the midnight oil.
If you’re new to campus or have a new iPad, here are a few tips to help you get connected to the LSUHSC networks.
To access the wireless network while on campus:
- Go to Settings->Wi-Fi; turn the Wi-Fi connection on
- Choose the network LSUHSC-Secure
- Enter your LSUHSC user i.d. and password and tap “Join”
- You will then be asked to accept the “eis-rcbnps3.master…” certificate
- Success! You’re now logged onto the LSUHSC wireless network
For those who would like to set up Citrix on their iPad, we have put together a walkthrough to help you with this process.
If you would like to set up your LSUHSC e-mail for use through the Mail app, more information can be found on this page. However, if you would like to receive your LSUHSC mail on your iPad, you will have to set up a passcode lock for your device if you have not already done so.
If you need any help with these steps or require anything else from the Library, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Off-campus access is available through the LSUHSC-New Orleans Citrix connection. If you have never used Citrix before, you will be prompted to download the Citrix Receiver software the first time you log in.
- Login to Citrix with your LSUHSC credentials.
- Install Citrix Receiver if necessary.
- Open Desktop-New
- Launch Internet Explorer.
- Navigate back to this page on the university webpage and use the On Campus link.
Be sure to check it out! There are lots of great books, journals, and other tools and resources for you to use.
Remember, Mosby’s Nursing Consult was officially retired by Elsevier on December 31, 2015.
Thanks to the School of Medicine Office of Student Technology, LSUHSC now has access to a new web-based clinical application designed to aid in visual diagnosis and patient education.
VisualDx?á allows point-of-care assistance for the user. The differential builder, diagnosis search, and medication search provide the information necessary to compare symptoms, visual cues, diagnosis, and treatment options. The VisualDx image bank contains over 25,000 medical images of diseases of the skin, hair, nails, eyes, lungs, etc. and shows variations by age, skin type, and stage.
You can watch a video overview of the application here:?áhttp://www.visualdx.com/features/video-overview.
Access to VisualDx is currently available through August 2014 for use on campus as well as off-campus for those with remote access privileges.?áSupported browsers are Internet Explorer 7+, Google Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. VisualDx also supports mobile wireless devices with a 3G or 4G connection.
Our next installment of 2 Minute Tips reveals the steps to access a database like PubMed or CINAHLplus with full text when you are off campus.
2 Minute tips is a blog series where we bring you short video tutorials on various tools and resources in the library.
Just in time for your Winter Break reading, eight articles authored by LSUHSC-NO researchers are being displayed in the Library. The publications on are on view in the Library’s Reference area (near the Library elevator) on the third floor of the Resource Center Building, and are also part of the Library’s Faculty Publications Database.
The Faculty Publications Database includes publications authored by at least one member of the LSUHSC-New Orleans faculty, 1998 – present. Access to this database is available to the public. The database is linked from the Library web page here. This page includes a handy link to a PDF of the monthly bibliography of display articles. To add your faculty publications, or for questions about this database, contact Kathy Kerdolff.

**Edit @ 6:30 pm** The off campus access screen is back to being pretty; please take a look at the office campus access webpage for screenshots. Please contact the Library if you have any problems.
*Edit @ 10:30 am* WAM access is back online, but it looks a little wonky. Functionality over beauty wins right now. We are continuing to work on the issue.
Unfortunately, with the launch of the new catalog look, off-campus access to full-text materials was accidentally disabled. We are working to fix this ASAP.
This month, the Library’s books display features our eBook databases, and some of the popular, recent editions of titles that can be accessed through our website. eBooks can be located in the following online resources:
