The Libraries have been working steadily to acquire materials or tools that are useful to you! Since the summer we’ve purchased the following:

Discover more about Discovery: Searching

Many of you have already used the newly-released Discovery/EDS Health search tool made available last week. With the multitude of resources available from this service, there are also a number of options to perform a search. The types of searches available will depend on how you access it.

If you use the search box on either of the Libraries’ homepages or the Databases page, you are presented with a number of options:

The default is to search all resources by keyword, and that will provide the broadest results from all of the databases, books, and journals available through the Discovery service. One drawback, though, is that the keyword searching is extremely broad; it will pick up that term or phrase in any titles, abstracts, or other descriptions for each work.

There is a way, though, to limit your search for all resources to an author or title by using the pulldown menu at the start of the field:

If you select one of those other options, you will still be looking at all of the resources in the Discovery service, but your search will be limited to those fields for the term you entered.

You can further limit your search by choosing one of the other available tabs in the search box if you would like to just search for articles or available books. The Journals tab performs a search of the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, so it takes you out of the Discovery tool at this time.

If you access the Discovery tool through its Databases listing, the search screen looks a bit different:

This is the basic search screen for the service,  but it functions much like the search box above. The default is a keyword search of all resources. For those who use other EBSCOhost databases such as CINAHL Complete or Academic Search Complete, searching from this screen should be familiar and it functions much like the other databases. You can also choose to perform an Advanced Search from this screen to craft a multi-faceted complex search string.

Stay tuned for more tips on how to use the new Discovery tool, but if you have any questions, please contact us.

Introducing Discovery/EDS Health!

Did you ever wish the Library had a quick way to search a bunch of stuff at one time? You can do so now with the unveiling of the Discovery/EDS Health tool! This new service allows you to search multiple databases and another way to get to many of the Library’s subscribed resources.

The Library’s home page has a new look with the Discovery tool’s search box:

From this box you can search everything that’s available, or just for articles, books, or journals. A keyword search will get you to a screen where you can start to explore all of the available resources:

If you’re familiar with other EBSCOhost databases such as CINAHL or Academic Search Complete, the presentation of the results and the options you have to refine your search should be familiar. You can also perform your search in PubMed, EMBASE, and ClinicalKey by clicking on the icons for each to the right of the screen.

One of the greatest benefits of the Discovery tool is that it brings together many databases, including MEDLINE, Scopus, and CINAHL, along with the majority of resources the Library subscribes to, such as books from AccessMedicine, journals from ScienceDirect, and items from the print collection, and puts them all in one place.

If you prefer to search other databases, those are still available, and the Discovery tool is meant to complement our current offerings.

If you are off-campus, you can search the Discovery service from the Library’s home page, but you may find that you are unable to get into everything that’s offered. As long as you see the yellow banner at the top, you’re looking at everything as a guest, but you will need to authenticate in order to get to any full-text content or to access all of the features of the tool. In order to fully use the service, just click on the yellow banner at the top of the page:

You will then be asked to enter your Library barcode and PIN through our EZproxy login service. More information and help about accessing Library resources when off-campus is available on the Library’s Databases page.

In the coming weeks we will have more posts that delve into the many features of this dynamic tool. There is a LibGuide available that walks through some of the basic features of the Discovery service, and Library staff always welcome your questions.

We hope you will find this new service useful and that it provides a way to get to more of the Library’s resources.

Unlimited Users on All Access Products!

The Libraries are happy to announce that all Access products: AccessMedicine, AccessEmergencyMedicine, AccessNeurology and AccessSurgery. Previously we had a limited number of seats to some of these products which prevented more than a few users at once. The access databases provide books (including core textbooks), journals, testing, multimedia, case studies, patient education and study tools. They are also integrated with AccessMedicine – Case Files Collection, with cases in both basic sciences and clinical rotations.

Library’s journals now available through Read by QxMD

We have added full support of Read by QxMD so you will now be able to link directly from article abstracts to the full-text of the article if the Library has a subscription.

You can access Read by QxMD on your computer by going to https://www.readbyqxmd.com/. Mobile apps are available through the appropriate Android and Apple app stores.

You will need to create an account in order to link to our journals. When you are setting up your account, be sure to choose “Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans” as your home institution. You can then choose whether you would like to be prompted to log in each time you need to retrieve an article, or to have your credentials automatically sent. If you choose the automatic login option, you will need to enter your Library barcode and PIN.

We hope this new addition will make your journal browsing easier and more robust, but if you have any questions please contact us.
