Fixed: Wiley journals access problems

June 9, 2022 UPDATE: This problem has been resolved, so you should have no trouble accessing Wiley journals on and off campus. If you need help, please contact us.

June 8, 2022 UPDATE: We are having this problem again, so logging in through OpenAthens is the only way to access Wiley journals both on and off campus. We will update when we have more information.

May 26, 2022 UPDATE: The problem has been fixed. You should now be able to access all Wiley journals both on and off campus. If you have any trouble, though, please let us know.

Original Post:

All Wiley journals are not easily available on campus or via any link that goes through EZproxy for off campus access. If you attempt to get the full text of any Wiley journal through any of these methods, you will be asked to log in or pay.

Logging in directly to Wiley Online Library using OpenAthens is a temporary workaround. Follow these steps to log in when off campus:

  • Click Login/Register on the right of the window

  • Then click Institutional Login
Screenshot of login screen
  • Click Sign in with your OpenAthens account
  • In the box to the right, type lsu and select LSU Health Sciences Center Library
  • You should see this screen where you enter your LSUHSC-NO full email address and current network password

If you are on campus, follow the same steps above, but the login screen will look like this where you enter just your LSUHSC-NO username (the first part of your email before the @lsuhsc.edu) and current password:

We will update as soon as we have more information about this problem, but if you need assistance with accessing these journals or with any other Library resources, please contact us.

June Faculty Publications

A new selection of articles have been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, are authored by at least one member of our research community here at LSUHSC-New Orleans. Each month the Library is proud to present copies of eight of these publications in a rotating display of 16. With the currently changes, we’ve decided to post the publications digitally. Check out the display below:

Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMedSCOPUS, 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 will be available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage. A PDF of a bibliography of this month’s addition will be available here. 

A special thank you to Kathy Kerdolff for doing an amazing job curating the most recent publications from Faculty, Residents, and Students to be displayed each month for so many years.

JAMA Cardiology now available!

The journal can also be accessed directly by going to https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamacardiology, but please remember that you will be asked to login if you are off campus. In addition, you can get to JAMA Cardiology and all other JAMA Network journals we subscribe to by logging in directly using OpenAthens.

New Digital Collection Added

A new collection has been added to the LSUHSC Digital Collection, the Robert Simmons Photograph Collection.
