New way to access Quintessence journals

We are happy to report that through the great generosity of Quintessence Publishing we are able to provide easier access to their journals.

Now, instead of having to log in with a password, you can get to the full text of Quintessence journals by logging in via EZproxy when prompted. The records in our online catalog for the affected journals are updated to reflect this change, and you can get to those journals by clicking on the links on this page.

There are some issues with the links on the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List, but we will have these updated to use the new access method as soon as we can.

This new access method is accompanied by a revamp of many of the Quintessence journal sites. There are a couple of things to look out for when trying to access the full text of articles on these new pages.

First, to get the PDF of an article, click the “Full Text” link underneath the article’s title to the left, and ignore the greyed out PDF link to the right:

Second, to browse through the issues of a title, scroll down when on the journal’s main page:

We hope this makes accessing content from the Quintessence journals easier. We would also like to thank Quintessence Publishing for their generosity in providing complimentary access to many of the journals we receive from them.

Problems accessing Quintessence journals online

UPDATE: Please see our post from September 15, 2023, regarding resolution of this issue

Quintessence Publishing recently updated their website, and we are having problems logging into the online content for journals on the new site. Most links from the records in the catalog go to the old site, where the logins work correctly. However, if you are redirected to the new site, please note you are unable to log in to get articles.

We are working with our subscription agent to resolve the issue and will update when we know more.

Please let us know if you need help with this or any other Library resources.

Starting July 31st, we now have access to StatPearls, a board review resource and question bank. Our subscription includes the following packages:

For more information visit our database page for StatPearls: https://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/databases/statpearls.aspx. To access our subscription, first visit the StatPearls LSUHSC-New Orleans registration portal and register. The link to the portal is on the database page.

If you need assistance, please contact your librarian liaison or email library technical services: librarytech@lsuhsc.edu.

Case Files Collection glitch

Our subscription to Case Files Collection from McGraw-Hill is not working correctly. Ignore the message that says “Get Free Access Through Your Institution.” You can still access some of the content if you are not logged into your MyAccess profile/account, but if you log in to your profile, it should be working correctly.

Creating a MyAccess profile is free, and you will need a MyAccess profile to use all of the functionality of the cases. If you are off-campus, you will need to be in an authenticated web session first in order to create a profile. See more information about off-campus access here: https://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/offcampus.aspx.

If you need assistance, please contact your librarian liaison or library technical services: librarytech@lsuhsc.edu.

The library’s access to BoardVitals will be ending Monday, July 31st. The group through which we receive BoardVitals is switching to a different board review service, StatPearls, https://www.statpearls.com/. We will have access to select packages on StatPearls starting July 31st.

The manager of the database is currently working to fix the problem. Until this is resolved, choose LSU Health New Orleans, general access.

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

RefWorks Classic Will Discontinue at End of June

On Friday, June 30th, 2023 access to RefWorks Classic will end. If you need to download or migrate citations, bibliographies, etc. please do so by the end of the month. LSUHSC-NO will continue to have access to the new version of RefWorks. Only RefWorks Classic is being discontinued.

UPDATE: EZproxy maintenance June 14th

UPDATE: EZproxy is back up and running. If you run into any problems, contact us.

On Wednesday, June 14, 2023, EZproxy will be unavailable for two to three hours for server maintenance. During this time, links from the Library’s catalog, E-Journals & E-Books AtoZ List, Databases, and most other links from Library resources may not work correctly.

If you are off campus, you can log into many resources directly by using OpenAthens. A list of sites where you can do so and instructions are available on the OpenAthens LibGuide.

If you are on campus, please contact us and we can provide links to resources while the system is unavailable.

Changes to resource access from Allied Health wired workstations

If you are using a wired workstation in the Allied Health building, we’ve had to make a change that now requires you to log in when accessing Library resources. We had reports of issues when users were trying to get to ebooks, articles, and databases, and this is the way to resolve those problems.

When you click one of the Library’s links to resources, click this link:

Screenshot of login page

When you click this link, you will most likely not be asked to re-enter your credentials, as those should be pulled from when you logged into your workstation.

This change ensures that your rights to access our subscribed content is passed along to the book, journal, and database websites.

Another tool that will help you more easily access resources is the LibKey Nomad browser extension. We have a LibKey Nomad LibGuide that shows you how to set up and use this tool that makes getting to journal articles very easy.

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