April Faculty Publications

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 PubMedSCOPUS, 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.

New EBooks Available

Due to current restrictions and recommendations, we are doing our best to add online access to our print books wherever possible.  In some instances we have acquired the newer editions, as older editions were not available or just too out of date.

Recently added titles:

Unfortunately, many publishers do not sell their online books to institutions and libraries, preferring students and instructors coordinate access directly through them. Some of those ebooks are available for sale through ebook sellers such as RedShelf and VitalSource, both of which are offering special access during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Please let us know if there is something in particular that you need us to try to acquire, and we will research the availability for institutional access.  More information and contact information can be found here: https://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/services/colldev.aspx.

Trial access to online resources

McGraw-Hill (AccessMedicine) and Ovid/LWW (LWW Health Library) have offered to open up extended trial access to some of their resources during the COVID-19 outbreak.

We created a LibGuide to keep track of these: https://libguides.lsuhsc.edu/trial. We will add more resources as they become available.

McGraw-Hill additional access is through June 1st. Those resources are AccessBiomedical Science, Cardiology, Pediatrics, Physiotherapy, and F.A. Davis PT collection (part of AccessPhysiotherapy).

Ovid/LWW additional access is through May 19th. Those resources are 5-MinuteConsult, Acland’s Video Atlas of Human Anatomy, Bates Visual Guide to Physical Examination, LWW Health Library Clerkship/Clinical Rotations, LWW Health Library Exercise Science, LWW Health Library PA Rotations/Specialties.

RESOLVED (mostly): LWW Health Library technical difficulties

It looks like our LWW Health Library access has been restored.  We are still seeing a few books listed in our collections that we shouldn’t be seeing, but the good news is access is mostly fully restored.  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.
