Unlimited Users on All Access Products!

The Libraries are happy to announce that all Access products: AccessMedicine, AccessEmergencyMedicine, AccessNeurology and AccessSurgery. Previously we had a limited number of seats to some of these products which prevented more than a few users at once. The access databases provide books (including core textbooks), journals, testing, multimedia, case studies, patient education and study tools. They are also integrated with AccessMedicine – Case Files Collection, with cases in both basic sciences and clinical rotations.

Library’s journals now available through Read by QxMD

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.
