In New PubMed: Cite Button

The new PubMed has added a “Cite” button, which provides citations in multiple formats. This feature allows you to quickly cite a single article for copying & pasting or downloading.

The “Cite” button is located in two places:

1. On the results page.

2. In the article record.

In New PubMed: Search Details

With the rollout of new PubMed, some features have changed – such as where to view search details. In old PubMed, the details of a search were displayed on the results page; in new PubMed, they are on the Advanced page. For more information, see the video below.

In New PubMed: Date Filter

In the updated PubMed, the publication date filter has been updated.
Old PubMed had a prepopulated, text-based filter, while the new PubMed has an adjustable bar graph showing number of publications/year in the results.

New PubMed (above) Publication Date filter is more responsive and findable compared to the same feature in old PubMed (below).

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.

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.

In New PubMed: MeSH

Since new PubMed is here, you need to know about changes to the database, such as “how do I search subject headings now?”

In the new PubMed, the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) Database can be found under the Explore column beneath the search box. The MeSH Database has not changed and still populates into Pubmed as before.

Ovid Access Changed

As of this morning, Ovid access (Medline, JBI, Books @ Ovid and Journals @ Ovid) has been changed. The new access point aligns it with all other databases to which the Libraries subscribe. Access off campus is via direct login to OpenAthens.

Saved searches under the old access method are not available. If saved searches are needed, contact Reference@lsuhsc.edu for more information.

Accessing Springer Protocols and journals

UPDATE: The problems should be fixed so Springer Protocols and journals should be available as usual via all Library links. If you run into one that is not or need any assistance, contact us.

We are currently experiencing problems accessing the Springer Protocols and all Springer journals both on campus and off campus through the Library’s EZproxy service (this would affect all links from Library pages and our Catalog).

If you need to access any Springer resources, you can do so using OpenAthens, but only when off campus. When you go to this page (https://link.springer.com/athens-shibboleth-login?previousUrl=https://link.springer.com/) under “Log in via Athens” find and select LSU Health Sciences Center. You will then need to enter your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password, but once logged in you should be able to use all Springer resources to which the Library subscribes with no trouble.

We will update when we have more information, but if you need any help please do not hesitate to contact us.

New off campus login page

If you tried to log in today to any Library resources from off campus, you will hopefully have noticed that the page looks a little different:

Screenshot of page with login options

The link to log in via OpenAthens using your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password is more prominent. If you would prefer to log in using your Library barcode and PIN, click the green bar to expand that option:

Screenshot of barcode and PIN login

If you need help with changing your password, PIN, or anything else, click on the blue Help bar and various options for assistance will appear:

More information about off campus access can be found in a number of places. We have a page with information including a video to help, along with LibGuides about OpenAthens and off campus access. If you have any questions about this or any other Library services, please contact us.

Accessing resources during system outage

*Edit* We were back up by 2pm. Thanks for your patience.

INNOPAC, our library system, will not be available starting at 12:45pm on Thursday, November 21st, and it could be out for at least two hours. This outage means that you will not be able to look up anything through the Library’s online catalog, and the link resolver in all databases will not work as well. There are, however, other options to find the resources you need during this time.

The Discovery/EDS Health search will still function and can help you locate a specific journal, book, or article:

There are many options presented that will still work, but some do rely on the system in order to work. As a result, any options to check the Library’s catalog or to use the WebBridge Link Resolver will not be available. However, particularly in the case of articles, there are many other options that can get you to what you need:

Another option to find a particular ebook or journal is the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List.

If you need to access any resource when off-campus, you will need to use your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password through OpenAthens; you will not be able to log in using your Library barcode and PIN while the system is unavailable:

EZproxy login page during system outage

In PubMed, you may be able to get to articles directly using the Library’s link resolver even though the system is unavailable. Since we are using the LibKey Link service in conjunction with our link resolver, if a direct link to the PDF of an article is available, then you will bypass our link resolver. However, if this direct link is not possible and our link resolver would be needed in order to find available full-text or get the article through InterLibrary Loan, you will be unable to proceed while the system is down.

You can also use the LibKey Nomad Chrome browser extension to access journals in PubMed or from publishers’ sites. This will be particularly useful in PubMed, as the extension indicates which articles are available through the Library’s subscriptions. However, since the Library’s link resolver will not be available, only those citations that have “Download PDF” or “Article Link” will work during our system outage:

New PubMed with LibKey Nomad extension icons

Even though INNOPAC, the Library’s catalog, will not be available, Library staff will have other ways to get to journals and resources during this downtime, so please contact us if you need help.

New off-campus tool: EZproxy Redirect

There is another tool now available for use when off-campus to help you access Library resources easily. The EZproxy Redirect, an extension for Chrome and Firefox, available thanks to the efforts of Tom Wambold, lets you re-load a web page with our EZproxy/authentication information so that you can get what you need.

Once installed, you will see a new icon by your browser’s address bar:

EZproxy Redirect icon in toolbar

If you go a web site such as ScienceDirect or Wiley Online Library, just click the icon and you’ll be able to re-load that page and then you will be directed to log in using either your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password or Library barcode and PIN. After that, you will be able to access any Library-subscribed resources with no troubles!

You can download the EZproxy Redirect Chrome extension here, or if you prefer to use Firefox, you can download that add-on here. We also have videos that walk you through the setup.

This one will help you install and set up the Chrome extension:

This video will walk you through installing the Firefox add-on:

We hope this new tool will help you to get to resources more easily, but if you need any help please contact us.

If you need more information about off-campus access, we have a LibGuide that covers that as well.

We also have more videos covering many topics; those can all be accessed either from our Video Tutorials page or on our YouTube channel.

Introducing AccessMedicine’s Auscultation Classroom

The Library is happy to announce a new AccessMedicine feature: the Auscultation Classroom.

The Auscultation Classroom provides students with audio-visual animations of heart anomalies, as well as animated illustrations of the auscultation areas for each anomaly. Alongside the animations are text explanations of the sounds you’ll hear and where they’re best auscultated.

This is a great new resource for learning auscultation techniques and familiarizing yourself with normal and abnormal heart sounds.  

The Auscultation Classroom launched with six initial modules:

  • Aortic Regurgitation
  • Aortic Stensosis with Regurgitation
  • Innocent Murmur
  • Normal Heart Sounds
  • S3 Gallop
  • S4 Gallop

New modules will be launching in early 2020.

To access the Auscultation Classroom while on campus, navigate straight to the Classroom.

Alternatively, you can visit accessmedicine.mhmedical.com, click the “Multimedia” dropdown on the top navigation bar, and select “Auscultation Classroom” from the top of the dropdown list.

If you’re off-campus, access the Auscultation Classroom by first logging into OpenAthens and then following either of the processes above.

Mobile access is also available for AccessMedicine content.

Issues accessing Thieme journals and some ebooks

UPDATE December 2nd: All Thieme books and journals are available both on- and off-campus. If you have any trouble accessing the content, though, please let us know.

UPDATE: Even though we thought the problem was fixed, we are still experiencing this issue as of Monday, November 25th.

We are currently experiencing troubles when accessing all Thieme journal and some ebooks when on campus or off-campus using a Library link. The publisher is working to correct the problem, but we do not know when it will be fixed.

If you are attempting to get an article from a Thieme journal or any book in the Thieme Clinical Collections when on campus or using a Library’s link that requires you to log in, you will be unable to access the content. (Any books in the MedOne Education package are not affected.)

If you are off-campus, you can access the affected Thieme titles by logging in directly through OpenAthens. Go to https://thieme-connect.com/products/all/home.html and choose Login, then select OpenAthens as the federation.

We will update as soon as we have more information about this, but if you need assistance, please contact us.
