Use PubMed? Then get LibKey Nomad!

It can be a struggle getting to articles when searching PubMed. Although we suggest you use our link to PubMed that turns on our link resolver, we know that’s not always the most convenient way. There is, however, a nifty little tool that makes getting articles in PubMed really easy.

LibKey Nomad is a handy browser plugin that enhances PubMed and brings the Library’s journal holdings to you. It is available for Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Vivaldi, and Brave browsers.

When installed, you will see PubMed come to life with new links to articles:

You can get to articles directly from your search results, so no more clicking back and forth to view the abstract and then see if we have access to that article!

Installing LibKey Nomad is easy. Just start at https://libkeynomad.com and then choose your browser. Once you’ve installed it, search for LSU and then choose “LSU Health Sciences Center”:

Choose institution for LibKey Nomad.

Now you’re good to go and you’ll wonder how you ever searched PubMed without LibKey Nomad.

The benefits of LibKey Nomad are not exclusive to PubMed; if you search Scopus or Web of Science, this tool also works with those sites.

More information about setting up and using LibKey Nomad can be found on our LibGuide. However, if you need any information about this or any other Library resources please contact us.

February 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.

We are still experiencing some technical difficulties with our Board Vitals subscription. It seems that most of the issues are with relatively new accounts.

We have contacted support for assistance and will update the blog when the issue has been resolved. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

ASHA Perspectives now available

The Library was able to add a current subscription to and purchase the available backfiles for ASHA Perspectives. You can now read all of the Perspectives of the ASHA Special Interest Groups from 2016 to present.

You can also access the archives of all 19 sections of the ASHA Special Interest Groups. Most are available for 1997 through 2015.

We hope these additions will be of help, but if you have any questions about this or any other Library resources please contact us.

More information and the subject guide can be found HERE.

Links to videos for NURS 7706

  • Copy the link to the video you want and paste it in the address bar in a new window in your browser
  • Copy this phrase: https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=
  • Paste that phrase in front of the link to the video you put in the address bar in the other tab in your browser; the new link should look something like https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=https://accessmedicine.mhmedical.com/…
  • Hit Enter or Return

Hopefully this will prompt you to log in when needed if off campus.

UPDATE: JAPMA now available

Update: As of Monday, January 25, we are able to access JAPMA for 1996 to present.

Original post: 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.

Fixed: Multiple journal sites currently unavailable

UPDATE: The problem appears to be resolved and all journals are available as usual.

A platform that provides access to multiple journals is currently undergoing maintenance, so the journals hosted by Atypon are unavailable.

This maintenance is affecting journals from the American Chemical Society, ASHA, the American Physiological Society, Mary Ann Liebert, New England Journal of Medicine, and multiple others.

We were not notified of this maintenance but will update as soon as we have more information

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

2021 JoVE changes

As a result of changes in subscription options and lack of funding, we will be losing all access to the following three sections of JoVE as of January 1, 2021:

  • JoVE Biochemistry
  • JoVE Developmental Biology
  • JoVE Genetics

We will still keep access to JoVE Biology, Immunology & Infection, Medicine, and Neuroscience.

If you need any assistance with this or other Library resources please contact us.
