Issues accessing Thieme journals and some ebooks

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.

LibX no longer available

If you were a user of the LibX extension, most recently available only for Chrome, it is not being updated and is no longer available for download.

Be sure to check out the LibKey Nomad extension for Chrome as it is a great complement to your research needs and helps you get to Library resources much easier!

New EBooks Added

The Library has added a small collection of new ebooks. These culturally and socially relevant titles are provided through the LOUIS Library Network and the Oxford Scholarship Online Evidence Based Selection program.

The titles are:

If you click on a title it will take you to our catalog listing and give you more information as well as a link to the ebook.

We hope you will find something that interests you.

Citation Resolver added to Discovery

Do you have a DOI but can’t figure out how to get the article? Looking for a new way to find the article for a citation? We have some good news for you! A new tool has been added to the Discovery Service/EDS Health that will help you get those articles!

The new Citation Resolver is now available from our Discovery Service/EDS Health. Look for it on the top toolbar or under the search box:

Image showing Citation Resolver in Discovery service.

To start looking up a citation, click Citation Resolver and the search box will change:

Citation Resolver for EBSCO Discovery Service

Now you can enter a DOI, article title, an author’s last name with words from the title, and even PMIDs. Here’s an example of a search using a DOI:

Citation Resolver search for a DOI

Once Resolve Citation was clicked, the results displayed, and the first one was the article that was needed along with a link to get the PDF:

Citation Resolver DOI search results with link to article highlighted

In the above, you may have noticed the DOI search was actually changed to a search for the author and title of the article, so the Citation Resolver does all of that hard work for you!

Although the Citation Resolver is extremely powerful, you may encounter some instances where you may not see the results you want. If you run into any problems or need any other assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.

If you’re using an iOS device, we have a walkthrough on how to install the Citrix Storefront app and use it to access your LSUHSC-NO Citrix Desktop. We’ve also created a short video showing how to log into Citrix on your mobile device in order to use Chrome and the LibKey Nomad extension.

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!
