A Virtual Library in a Library!

Isché Library is pleased to announce the addition of the ScienceDirect EBS Collection. Spanning from 2013 to the present, this vast and varied collection encompasses a wide range of disciplines and provides access to over 5000 books, with more being added throughout the subscription period. The entire collection will be available through June of 2018. After that, we will be permanently adding those titles that show the most use.

We are still reviewing all of these titles and will be adding links for any duplicates of our print collection to the catalog, as well as adding catalog listings for the most relevant titles utilized by our patrons. In the meantime, you can access the collection at this link.  Choose Books at the top of the home page, then choose Books and Subscription and complimentary from the two drop down menus above the list of titles.  You can filter by subject on the left side of the screen.

The titles from this collection are also accessible through the AtoZ list.

We will be offering up tidbits and treasures from the collection over the next few weeks as we plumb the depths of the different subject headings within the collection.  Please join us in this adventure and perhaps find some treasures of your own!

WebBridge Link Resolver restored in PubMed

After many, many months of not working correctly, we are happy to report that the WebBridge Link Resolver is once again available for PubMed. As our most-used database, we are relieved to offer this service to all of you after such a long absence.

If you would like a refresher or an introduction to how the link resolver works in PubMed, you can refer to this earlier post. Additionally, if you’d like to set up your My NCBI account to display the link resolver icon, please see this walkthrough.

For those who want to know more about the WebBridge Link Resolver, this LibGuide is made just for you.

Need any more information or assistance? We’re always available to help.

DynaMed Plus

DynaMed Plus

This summer the LSU Health Sciences Center Library upgraded from DynaMed, a clinical information resource to DynaMed Plus. The new, visually appealing database offers information in bullet points, topic overviews on drugs, diseases, and therapies. Due to the ease of the resource, it is often compared to UpToDate. Topics included in the user interface update daily. Operators automatically receive practice changing updates. The amazing tool links to 2,500 full-text articles; handlers get answers quickly and efficiently. Most importantly, consumers can easily download the DynaMed Plus app to use on their phones or tablets.

What a Sticky Web of Science!

The library has resubscribed to Web of Science for your comprehensive search needs! Along with this renewal, we have Essential Science Indicators and Journal Citation Reports in order to track citations, trends, and journals – including impact factors.

Get caught up in this database again!

Spotlight on Faculty Publications for July

Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMed, SCOPUS, 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 is available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage. For a PDF of a bibliography of this month’s additions, click here. If you have an article you would like us to highlight or if you have any questions regarding the display or the database, you can contact Kathy Kerdolff.
Please come to the Library and view these recent publications by our research community.

Downtime for Wiley

Wiley logoThe Wiley Online Library will be down for a few hours this weekend.

According to a message on their website, Wiley Online Library will be unavailable on Saturday, July 1st, from 2:00AM-8:00AM CDT and on Sunday, July 2nd, 2:00AM-5:00AM CDT for essential maintenance. We would like to join the fine folks at Wiley in extending our apologies for the inconvenience to our dedicated researchers burning the midnight oil.

Finding articles during system outage

Although we are hoping that our system will not be down for the bulk of the day, if you need an article during this time here are a few tips and an alternative to get articles during this downtime.

If you want to check whether the Library owns a journal, the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List is a good source but only from on campus; unfortunately, the majority of links on the list will not work as they rely on talking with our system in order to get you to the journal.

If you have the author and title of the article you need, when on campus you can attempt to get to the journal using the CrossRef Free DOI Guest Search. When you use the “Search on Article Title” option, if a match is found you will be able to use the link to get to the article:
CR Guest Search

There is no guarantee that we have access rights to the journal, though, but this is a way to get to the article while our system is down.

Even though INNOPAC, the Library’s catalog, will not be available, Library staff will have other ways to get to journals and resources during this downtime, so please contact us if you need help.

Cancellations

Due to lack of funds, the library is not able to continue support of the following resources:

Rehabilitation Reference Center, expires April 30, 2017
Tests in Print Online, expires April 30, 2017
Natural Medicines, expires May 31, 2017

These databases have low usage compared with other library resources.

Please feel free to contact your librarian liaison for help finding information from other sources.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

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.

Prosthetics & orthotics in clinical practice, more access available!

pocp-may-bookProsthetics & orthotics in clinical practice, by Bella J. 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.
