RefWorks

RefWorks is currently developing a new and improved version of itself referred to simply as the new RefWorks. At this time, the new RefWorks does not have all of the same functionality as the old RefWorks, which is now referred to as legacy RefWorks. As such, we will not be migrating our subscription to the new RefWorks until all of the kinks have been straightened out. If you are prompted with a choice between the legacy version (orange) and the new version (blue), please select the legacy version (orange).

We will let you know when the new version is ready for prime time. As always, if you need assistance, please feel free to contact us.

Prepub articles now available in BrowZine

If you use BrowZine to keep track of your favorite journals or to discover new ones, a recent update has brought the ability to scan articles that have yet to be assigned to a specific issue of a journal. These prepublication or epub ahead of print articles are now available through the “Articles in Press” link in the web and mobile versions of BrowZine.

On the web version, once you’ve found a journal you would like to peruse, look for the “Articles in Press” link just below the journal’s image:

bz-web-articles-in-press

On the Android and iOS apps, tap the “Available Issues” button, and you will now see these early view articles at the top of the list of available issues:

bz-app-articles-in-press

For more information about the Library’s version of BrowZine, check out our LibGuide with information on how to use this great service to keep up on current journal literature.

If you need any assistance with this or any other resources available from the Library, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Cambridge journals and security warnings

The web addresses for all Cambridge University Press journals have changed and as a result you will see a message regarding the security certificate for the new location. Although in this case there is no real danger in proceeding to the new site, you will need to add a security exception to your browser in order to view content from these journals. Each browser handles this situation in a different way, so hopefully the following will help you get to that Cambridge content.

For Chrome, click on “Advanced” and then click the link that begins with “Proceed to…”

Chrome Cambridge Certificate

In Internet Explorer, click the link “Continue to this website (not recommended)”

Explorer1

In Firefox, first click the “Add Exception” button:

FF Cambridge 1

Then click “Confirm Security Exception”

FF Cambridge 2

Finally, for those for whom Safari is your browser of choice, you just need to click the “Continue” button in the window that pops up:

Safari Cambridge

Regardless of which browser you use, once you add this exception you will now be able to proceed to any journals from Cambridge without further harassment.

If you need any help with this or other Library resources, do not hesitate to contact us.

New search option added to link resolver

Every now and then there is a hiccup in the process by which information goes through a number of channels in order to get you to your article when using the WebBridge Link Resolver from many Library databases. If you’ve seen the dreaded “No DOI found” message, you’ve probably wondered where to go next.

DOI Search Error

We are happy to report we have added an option that now gives you the option to get to the journal where the article you need is published if you see the above screen when attempting to retrieve an article. For those resources where the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) is integral to this process, you will now see another link that will bring to to the journal’s site:

Alternate Search Option

If you encounter the “DOI not found” error, just return to the link resolver result screen and click the alternate link to get to the journal or the publisher’s site.

We hope that this will help alleviate some of the trouble that you have getting articles through the link resolver. If you need more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, check out our LibGuide. Also, if you need help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.

Link resolver available again in all EBSCOhost databases

We are happy to report the WebBridge LR links are once again appearing in all EBSCOhost databases. If you need a refresher on how the link resolver works, this LibGuide will help.

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

Tips for accessing resources from the hospitals

If you are a new resident or have a new rotation, you might find it a little difficult to access Library resources from the various hospitals. Unfortunately, the wired and wireless networks at UMC, Children’s, and any of the other hospitals are neither part of nor managed by the Health Sciences Center, and you might even be blocked from getting to many web-based services while on those networks. If you need to access Library resources while at the hospitals, the following will help you get what you need:

  • Go to http://www.lsuhsc.edu and choose the Citrix icon
  • CitrixYou can also go to http://citrixweb.lsuhsc.edu directly
  • Log on using your LSUHSC user i.d. and password; you may also be prompted to install the Citrix Receiver before you are able to log in
  • Choose “Desktop-New”
  • When your Citrix session is up and running, go to the Start Menu to open up Internet Explorer
  • From the LSUHSC homepage, choose “Libraries” on the left
  • You can then choose which resource you would like to use
    • To find out whether the Library has access to a particular book or journal, click the link for “Library Catalog/INNOPAC”
    • If you wish to search for articles through PubMed, want to use AccessMedicine, or any other databases, choose “Databases” from the left and then go to the page for that resource
      • Be sure to click the “Off Campus” link for any database you wantOff Campus
      • Citrix sessions are sometimes not recognized as being on campus, so you may also be asked to provide your name, barcode, and PIN that is used to access Library resources when off campus

If you need any assistance with these steps or anything else from the Library, please do not hesitate to contact us.

AccessMedicine upgrade, new products

AccessMedicineWe are pleased to announce that our AccessMedicine subscription has been upgraded to an institutional site license with no restrictions on the number of users.  That means no more lock-outs for AccessMedicine.  Many thanks are owed to the School of Medicine for contributing funds to support this upgrade.  We couldn’t have done it without you!

AccessMedicine is a dynamic resource that includes online textbooks, case studies, videos, drug monographs, USMLE review questions, diagnostic tools, and more.  The online book collection is very popular and it includes top titles such as Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine, Dr. Michael Levitzky’s Pulmonary Physiology, Dr. Patricia Molina’s Endocrine Physiology, and the Current Diagnosis & Treatment series, just to name a few!

Custom-curriculum

As a bonus, we can now offer expanded access to the Custom Curriculum component of this resource.  Instructors can register their MyAccess profiles for the added capability of developing and managing interactive learning modules where they can assign readings, give quizzes, and track students’ progress.  See the Custom Curriculum web page for more information or contact the School of Medicine Librarian Liaison, Kathy Kerdolff, if you have any other questions.

Case-Files-Hem-Onc

Two new collections have been added to our arsenal as well:

AccessMedicine’s HemOnc Collection, which provides online access to top titles in Hematology and Oncology, and the Case Files Collection, which adds over 1,000 case files to our subscription.

AccessEM-Surg

We have also renewed AccessEmergency Medicine at a level of 3 concurrent users, and thanks to continued funding from the Department of Surgery, we are able to maintain our AccessSurgery subscription at a level of 10 concurrent users.  The Department of Surgery has been funding extra users on that subscription since 2008!  We couldn’t have done it without you either! To maximize the usefulness of those limited users, please remember to sign out when you are finished using those databases.

Access-sign-out

We hope you find all of these subscriptions useful in your teaching, education, and research!

MICROBES—tiny organisms too small to be seen with the naked eye—have altered human history. Life forms such as bacteria, yeasts, and molds can cause sickness or restore health, and help produce foods and beverages.

Scientists, in partnership with industry, have developed techniques to harness the powers of these microbes. In recent years, headline-grabbing technologies have used genetically modified bacteria to manufacture new medicines.

A glimpse into the past reveals a history of human enterprise that has adapted these tiny organisms for health and profit. This exhibition explores some of the processes, problems, and potential inherent in technologies that use life.

ExamMaster Off Campus Access

ExamMaster access from off campus has been restored. The service just added a note that “for optimal user experience, use Chrome or Firefox browsers.When using Chrome off campus, we are seeing a security warning but if you accept what they consider a risk than you can get in.

Link resolver not displaying in EBSCOhost databases

The WebBridge LR links are currently not displaying in any EBSCOhost databases, including CINAHL and Academic Search Complete. You will continue to see a link to check the Library’s catalog for all citations in these databases, but you will not see the “Check Full Text” icon:

Cinahl LR No Display

If you do not find a match when clicking the link to check the Library catalog, you can search for the journal or book in the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List to find whether it is available from another provider.

The issue is being investigated but there is no timeline for when the problem will be fixed. If you need any assistance while this service is unavailable, please contact us.

Finding resources during INNOPAC maintenance

While the Library’s INNOPAC system is offline for maintenance, a number of functions are affected. During this outage the catalog, off-campus access, and link resolver will be unavailable. However, here are a few ways to get the resources you need during this downtime:

  • All print books and journals will be available for checkout; although we will be unable to look up holdings and call numbers, Library staff will assist you in finding the materials you need from anything that is on reserve or in the stacks.
  • All online resources will be available on campus only; when viewing the available databases be sure to click the “On Campus” link:

On Campus

  • If you need an ebook you can use the eBooks LibGuide to find the on-campus links to the electronic books available from various publishers.
  • Although it is also an option for ebooks, the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List will allow access to the online version of the majority of journals available from the Library.

We hope the outage will not last very long, but Library staff will be ready to answer any questions you have regarding resources while this necessary maintenance is completed. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
