5th Floor noise warning for week of February 26th

Rows of library shelves with stacks of books

During the week of February 26, 2024, crews will be on the 5th Floor to remove the items and shelving from the Prieur Street side of the floor. It will be very noisy while they work and we will also need to limit the seating in the immediate area.

Rows of library shelves roped off

The tables and carrels on the Bolivar Street side of the 5th Floor may offer some respite from the noise, along with the study areas on the 3rd and 4th Floors.

While this is happening, please be courteous to others who may have relocated due to the disruption on the 5th Floor.

February 7, 2024 – The Libraries will have holiday hours over carnival weekend through Mardi Gras.

The Isché Library will close early or be closed from February 9th-13th; the Library will close at 5pm on Friday, February 9th and Monday, February 12th and will be completely closed Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday, February 10th, 11th and 13th.

February Faculty Publications

A new selection of articles has been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Isché Library. These eight articles, as well as all the articles in LSU Health Digital Scholar, 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. Check out the display below:

LSUHSC Digital Scholar is an institutional repository and is a service of the LSU Health Science Center Libraries. Research and scholarly output included here has been selected and deposited by the Libraries, as well as individual university departments and centers on campus.  

Publications cited in LSU Health Digital Scholar are harvested 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. You can access LSU Health Digital Scholar at https://digitalscholar.lsuhsc.edu/.  

If you have an article that you would like us to highlight or if you have any questions regarding the display or the database, you can contact our Librarians at reference@lsuhsc.edu

5th Floor Project Update

The major project on the 5th Floor of the Library to create space for an IT data center has reached a milestone. We have completed shifting the print journal collection, so the floor will be markedly quieter for a while.

The next phase of the project, which will entail clearing and tearing down of the shelving on the Prieur Street side of the floor, is tentatively scheduled to commence in the summer. We will post signage warning of increased noise and commotion once we have a better idea of when these next steps will start.

Although the print volumes have been removed, we still have some work to do for the affected journals’ records in our Library catalog. If you need assistance locating a print journal, please don’t hesitate to ask for help.

If you have any questions about this or any other Library services and/or resources, please contact us.
