We hope you’ve been using and enjoying the LibKey Nomad extension for the Chrome desktop browser. You’ll be happy to know that you are able to install it for the Chrome browser that is available through Citrix.
First, log into Citrix as usual. (More information about installing and logging into Citrix can be found at Information Technology’s site.) Then, open up Chrome in your Citrix Desktop. Once there, you can search Google for LibKey Nomad and install it from the Chrome Web Store, or you can go directly to https://tinyurl.com/libkeynomad.
Then, click Add to Chrome followed by Add extension:
Then you will be asked to choose your institution. Search for lsu and choose LSU Health Sciences Center:
Now when you open Chrome in Citrix, you should see this icon next to the address bar:
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!

This extensive collection includes a wide range of pediatric topics, from dermatology to parenting. There are coding manuals and ebooks on practice management, as well as patient guidelines for new parents. There are even a few titles in Spanish.
The AAP database platform includes:
Advanced search capabilities for easy discoverability
Responsive design for mobile optimization
Reading app for smartphones and tablets
You can browse the database or search by topic or title. The titles can also be accessed through the Library catalog. And we also have access to the AAP database of neonatal resuscitation ebooks.

Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMed, SCOPUS, 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. 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.
Please come to the Library and view these recent publications by our research community.
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.
Today we’ve launched a new and hopefully improved look for the WebBridge LR Link Resolver results page. All of the links you’re used to are still there, but now they’re in a slightly different presentation:
If you need more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, you can take a look at the LibGuide that will walk you through the basics.

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.

INNOPAC, our library system, will not be available starting at 7am on Tuesday, May 21st, and it’s estimated it could be out for up to four 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:
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:
The Libraries’ online catalog, INNOPAC, and all associated programs will be down again on Tuesday morning beginning at 7am for scheduled maintenance. We will post when it comes back online. We apologize for the inconvenience.
