January 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. A PDF of a bibliography of this month’s additions will soon be available 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.

Lost access to JAPMA

We have lost all online access to articles for the Journal of the American Podiatric Medical Association. The Library does have print issues for 1985 through 2005, and we are working to have the problem resolved.

If you need help with this or any other Library resources, contact us.

UPDATE: Access to Genetics 2020 issues

UPDATE: As of January 11, 2021, we now have access to 2020 issues of Genetics via the new publisher’s site. You should now see articles available from the Oxford University Press Medicine Collection. Our access to 2020 issues from the Society’s page is still not available.

We have lost access to all 2020 issues of the journal Genetics. We are currently working to notify the publisher to get our access restored. All issues older than one year are available to anyone.

This journal is moving to Oxford University Press for 2021, but the content is not available on their site yet. As soon as the issues are posted, you will see a link to the Oxford site.

If you have any questions about this or any other Library resources please contact us.

The Chronicle of Higher Education Data Breach

The Chronicle of Higher Education has reported a data security incident. Some account holder names, email addresses, usernames, and passwords for some online accounts to chronicle.com, philanthropy.com, and/or chroniclevitae.com were posted online by unauthorized parties. Account holders should have received notification from the Chronicle, and the Chronicle reset all passwords. If account holders use the same usernames and passwords for any other online account, The Chronicle recommends that they change the passwords to those accounts as well. Complete information about what happened can be read at https://www.chronicle.com/page/notice-of-data-breach.

Resolved: Most ScienceDirect articles currently unavailable

UPDATE 2: As of June 2nd, this problem has been fixed. If you encounter any issues with this or any other Library resource, contact us.

UPDATE: if you need an article from a ScienceDirect journal and are unable to download it yourself, please contact us. Library staff have a workaround to get articles until this problem is resolved.

We are currently experiencing issues getting articles from ScienceDirect journals both on- and off-campus.

We will update as soon as we have more information about this problem. If you need any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Trial access to T&F Expert Opinions and Expert Reviews

Taylor & Francis has very generously opened up access to the Expert Opinions and Expert Reviews series through the end of September 2020.

LibKey Nomad now available!

We are happy to announce LibKey Nomad is now available! This Chrome extension (for the desktop version only) brings the Library’s journal holdings to you, guiding you to get the full-text of articles. It works both on- and off-campus, and hopefully it will become your go-to tool for getting articles.

First, start by downloading the extension from the Chrome Web Store. Then, when asked to select your institution, search for LSU and choose LSU Health Sciences Center:

Although we would prefer you follow links from the Library’s web site as it helps with making sure you are able to access the resources to which we subscribe, with LibKey Nomad you will now be able to go pretty much anywhere and get access to articles or see options for retrieving them on each page.

For example, if you go directly to ScienceDirect and locate an article you would like to read, you will see an icon on the lower right of the screen providing you with access options:

In this case, clicking on the Download PDF icon will bring you directly to the article. You will be asked to authenticate using either your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password or Library barcode and PIN if you had not done so already if off-campus, but you will not be asked to do so again for the rest of your session.

LibKey Nomad also brings increased and easier functionality to PubMed. Not only will you see journal covers bringing a bit more color to the results summary screen, you can now get to the article directly from the search results list! Look for the icons next to the citations:

Now you no longer have to go into the abstract view of each article to see the options you have to get the full-text!

These are just a few of the highlights of what LibKey Nomad can do. More information can be found on the LibKey Nomad page of our BrowZine LibGuide, or you can contact us for more help. We hope you will find this new tool helpful for your research needs, so please download it and give it a try!

Karger journals unavailable Aug. 31st

If you’re planning on doing some early morning research, please be advised that all Karger journals will be unavailable on Saturday, August 31, 2019, from 2am until 4am. The publisher is performing maintenance on their site during this time.

If you have any problems accessing these or any other Library resources, please contact us.

PubMed: now with one-click PDFs!

Thanks to our subscription to BrowZine and their new tool LibKey Link, we are happy to announce that starting today for many articles in PubMed you can get to the PDF with just one click!

You will need to follow the link to PubMed with a special code that turns on our link resolver. When viewing the abstract of a particular citation, click our “Check Full Text” icon:

When available, you will be taken directly to the PDF of the article. If that is not possible, you will be brought instead to our WebBridge Link Resolver results page with the available options to retrieve that article.

If you are off-campus, you will be asked to authenticate either through OpenAthens or with your Library barcode and PIN.

For more information about BrowZine, see our LibGuide. We also have LibGuides available for Off Campus access, the link resolver, and OpenAthens.

Elsevier Products at LSUHSC-NO

Joining a growing number of universities and government entities who find themselves at odds with Elsevier’s pricing or policies, LSU has recently announced that it will terminate its “big deal” with Elsevier at the end of the year. Understandably, some are asking how this will affect LSUHSC-NO.

LSU’s action is no cause for alarm on our own campus. Our collections are not directly connected with those of LSU. And we recently entered a deal with Elsevier for the Freedom Collection, adding several hundred relevant journals to our collection and many more that may appeal to the “long tail” users of our community. Our Elsevier agreement is one of our most cost-effective and, because of a three-year controlled-cost agreement, likely to stay that way for a while.

We feel solidarity with the librarians at LSU and the University of California.  We recognize that the rising costs of biomedical literature access far outstrips the costs of inflation. And we acknowledge that the current system in which those who produce the literature must also pay to use it is greatly flawed. These are concerns LSUHSC-NO faculty may wish to address on multiple fronts such as tenure and promotion and scholarly communication processes before we find ourselves in crises mode.

Statement regarding American Journal of Gastroenterology access

UPDATE: As of May 8, 2019, access to the American Journal of Gastroenterology has been extended to 1998 to present.

The American Journal of Gastroenterology changed publishers this year, and, as a result, we now have extremely reduced access to the online version of the journal. Although we at the Library strive to provide as complete and stable access to our journals as is possible, in this instance we have been caught in a situation caused by the sponsoring society’s desire to change to a new publisher and a new agreement between them that we only recently were made aware of. Consequently, we no longer can get to the online version of the journal for many years’ articles to which we had subscribed.

This is the fourth time the journal has changed publisher since 2003. We changed to an online-only subscription in 2006, and the print version we have in the Library ended with 2005. Each time the journal moved to a new publisher, all of the content from the previous site was removed, even though we had what’s called perpetual access rights with those earlier publishers, meaning we should always be able to get to the years for which we subscribed to the online-only version.

The removal of all of the old content of American Journal of Gastroenterology from the previous publishers’ sites did not present a problem until this most recent move. Due to an agreement between the journal’s sponsoring society and the new publisher, our online access to this journal is now limited to 2015 to present. As a result of this, we have now lost all of the content for 2006 to 2014. We are not alone in this situation, as many other libraries are reporting they, too, have lost considerable access to older volumes of this journal.

We are currently working with the most recent previous publisher of the journal to get copies of some of those volumes, but those will not be available until later this year. In the meantime, if you need an article for this journal from 2006 through 2014, you will need to use our InterLibrary Loan service.

We are very sorry this situation has occurred, but we are still trying to regain access to those older volumes. In the meantime, though, we know your ability to get to the articles affected by this change has been made much more difficult, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you need assistance.

New Video on Finding Peer Reviewed Journal Articles

John P. Bourgeois, our Public Health Liaison Librarian, has created a short video tutorial describing what Peer Review is and how to find journals using the LSUHSC Libraries’ Discover Service. If you are looking for articles for a paper and don’t know where to start, you want to learn how to use our Discovery search bar, or if you simply want a refresher, watch this short video!
