Reserve Anatomy Book Now Available as an Ebook

developing humanWe are pleased to announce that The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology, 10th edition, is now available in an Ebook format.

From the record in the library catalog, click on the link for EBSCOhost Ebooks. We have 3 “copies” available, so we are allowed 3 concurrent online users.

The print edition is on reserve for ANAT 100 – Gross Anatomy and ANAT 101 – Human Prenatal Development.  But we think you’ll find the electronic edition to be much lighter.

Oxford journals available on-campus only

We are currently having trouble with off-campus access and journals we receive from Oxford University Press, so these titles will be available on-campus only until the problem is fixed. You will see a note indicating on-campus only restrictions for these journals displayed in links from the Library Catalog, A to Z List, and link resolver. As soon as the issue is resolved, we will restore off-campus access.

If you need assistance when off-campus in retrieving articles from Oxford journals, please contact us.

May, is now available online through the EBSCOhost eBooks platform, as well as through the R2 Digital Library.  The Library was able to purchase multiple-user access through EBSCO, so now more than one user can access the book at the same time.  Our R2 Digital Library access for this book allows for one user at a time.

This book is required for course PHTH 7234 – Prosthetics and Orthotics in Physical Therapy.  We hope this additional access will be helpful!

Both platforms offer a variety of options for saving and printing content.

FIXED! AccessMedicine searching problems

UPDATE: This problem has been fixed, 2/3/2017.  Thanks for your patience!

New Year, New Books!

The Isché Library is starting 2017 by featuring new books and E-books! Some of these books are required for Spring 2017 classes, so come and see if one of your textbooks is on display.
The display is located near the 3rd floor elevator. Subjects include nursing research & theory, physiopathology, genetics, data systems, rehabilitation, neuroscience, orthopedics, and more.

These books and many more are available for checkout or online access. If you have questions about checking out a book or accessing an E-book, do not hesitate to ask a library staff member.

FIXED! Thieme E-Book Library problems

UPDATE: This problem has been fixed, 2/16/2017.  The Thieme E-Book Library titles can be accessed on or off-campus through the INNOPAC catalog.  Thanks for your patience!

The Thieme E-Book Library is not working properly through our library catalog, INNOPAC.  The books can still be accessed on campus directly through the Thieme E-Book Library platform: https://ebooks.thieme.com/bookshelf or off campus through CITRIX.  Books can be read online or downloaded for offline use via iPublishCentral Reader, which is available on the Thieme E-Book Library website.  We are currently updating the links in our catalog and working with the publisher to fix this problem.

New BrowZine Features

BrowZine recently rolled out two new features that supplement the ability to find journals on your favorite topics and also to save articles you’d like to read later.

When you search or browse for a title and/or subject, you will now see a link to journals that although not available to view or manage through BrowZine, are available via the Library’s E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List. These additional titles are available under the heading “Journals available outside of BrowZine” as shown below:

BZ Outside Links

You will not be able to add these titles to your BrowZine bookshelf, but they may be helpful when you’re looking for journals that pique your interest.

A second new feature just rolled out is called “My Articles.” This is new to the web version of BrowZine, and builds upon an option available in the mobile version of the service. A walkthrough about this new feature, including limitations for offline browsing, is available on the About My Articles page on the BrowZine Support site.

If you need any help with BrowZine or any other Library resources, be sure to contact us.

Temporary link resolver for PubMed

The problem with PubMed and the WebBridge Link Resolver is still ongoing, so a new service is in use as a temporary alternative to bring link resolver features to PubMed. When you click on our “Check Full Text” icon in PubMed, a screen similar to the following listing any potential sources to get to the article you need is displayed:

ftf-page

This temporary option uses the coverage information from our E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List. Although it covers many of the journals we receive, it does not include all of our subscribed titles nor our print holdings. Regardless of whether an online source is found for the article, each page will provide a link to the Library’s Catalog so that you can also check there to see if we have that particular journal in print or online.

We are still hoping for a fix so that we can return to using the WebBridge Link Resolver in PubMed, and we apologize for any troubles this temporary change in service has and continues to cause. If you need assistance with this or any other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Two course books added online!

ebsco-ebooks-3

The Library is pleased to announce that we have received special funding from the Board of Regents e-Textbook Project, Affordable Learning LOUISiana, to purchase 2 required textbooks for Spring 2017:

Analyzing and conceptualizing the theoretical foundations of nursing by Janice Morse (2017) for NURS 7307 taught by Dr. Gloria Giarratano

Vestibular disorders: a case-study approach to diagnosis and treatment, 3rd ed., by Joseph Furman (2010) for SPTHAUD 7323 taught by Rachel Wood.

These books are available with unlimited users and can be accessed anytime and from anywhere (on or off campus) through the EBSCO eBook Collection.

Dr. Joseph C. Rallo, Commissioner of Higher Education, directed the Board of Regents to find ways that the state could help students with the increasing costs of education and, in particular, textbooks.  The Affordable Learning LOUISiana program is coordinated by LOUIS: the Louisiana Library Network, a consortium of higher education libraries in the state. Through LOUIS, member libraries can participate in a variety of collaborative purchases that help reduce the costs of library resources such as databases, online journals, and ebooks.  LSUHSC-NO has been a member library for many years, and we are grateful for the LOUIS staff and all of their efforts to help improve higher education in the state of Louisiana.

The Library has a large collection of ebooks through a variety of sources, so be sure to check the INNOPAC catalog and our eBooks LibGuide for more information.  For help with remote access, please consult our Off-Campus Access Information.

New look for the A to Z List

The E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List has undergone a radical makeover and we hope you will be pleased with the results.

First, the aesthetics of the list have changed:

atoz-new-landing

The searching function of the list has also been overhauled. When you begin to type in a title or term, you will now see potential matches from the resources available on the list:

atoz-new-search

Although the page may look different, accessing the journals or books on the list is the same as the old version with available years and sources still listed for the titles:

atoz-new-results

Although it looks very different and has some new features, all of the titles that were available on the old version are still available in the new E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List. If you need any assistance with this or any other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us.
