Hanna Kwasik retires from the Libraries

hannaHanna Kwasik, Head-Cataloging and Serials, retired from the Libraries on December 31, 2016. After working at the Earl K. Long Library at the University of New Orleans, Hanna joined the staff of the Isché Library in September 1999 as Serials Librarian. During her time at LSUHSC, Hanna guided the Libraries’ transition from predominantly print to electronic resources. Of note was that during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, she helped to ensure that LSUHSC patrons were able to access Library resources while spread throughout the state by transforming the journal collection to online-only almost overnight. Hanna has served as a mentor and friend to her many coworkers and colleagues throughout Louisiana and the region.

Hanna is also an avid and award-winning photographer. In 2014, her photo of an assassin bug and hibiscus plant received a second-place commendation in the Times-Picayune Garden Photo Contest. Her photo “Gondola Ride Under the Clouds” received the first-place award in the recreation-sports category for the Advocate’s “Heart of City Park” photo contest. In addition, her photo of violets was featured in the 2014 LSU Ag Center calendar.

Although we will miss her tremendously, we all wish Hanna much happiness and joy and she embarks on this new chapter in her life.

Two course books added online!

ebsco-ebooks-3

The Library is pleased to announce that we have received special funding from the Board of Regents e-Textbook Project, Affordable Learning LOUISiana, to purchase 2 required textbooks for Spring 2017:

Analyzing and conceptualizing the theoretical foundations of nursing by Janice Morse (2017) for NURS 7307 taught by Dr. Gloria Giarratano

Vestibular disorders: a case-study approach to diagnosis and treatment, 3rd ed., by Joseph Furman (2010) for SPTHAUD 7323 taught by Rachel Wood.

These books are available with unlimited users and can be accessed anytime and from anywhere (on or off campus) through the EBSCO eBook Collection.

Dr. Joseph C. Rallo, Commissioner of Higher Education, directed the Board of Regents to find ways that the state could help students with the increasing costs of education and, in particular, textbooks.  The Affordable Learning LOUISiana program is coordinated by LOUIS: the Louisiana Library Network, a consortium of higher education libraries in the state. Through LOUIS, member libraries can participate in a variety of collaborative purchases that help reduce the costs of library resources such as databases, online journals, and ebooks.  LSUHSC-NO has been a member library for many years, and we are grateful for the LOUIS staff and all of their efforts to help improve higher education in the state of Louisiana.

The Library has a large collection of ebooks through a variety of sources, so be sure to check the INNOPAC catalog and our eBooks LibGuide for more information.  For help with remote access, please consult our Off-Campus Access Information.

scc-mla-logo

Congratulations to Jennifer K. Lloyd, our Assistant Director of Access Services! In October, Jennifer received the Distinguished Service Award (DSA) from the South Central Chapter of the Medical Library Association (SCC/MLA) during the chapter’s annual meeting in Galveston, TX. The DSA recognizes an individual’s long-term commitment to and promotion of the organization. Jennifer has been an active member of SCC since 1999. She has been consistently involved in the organization over the past 17 years, serving on and chairing almost every committee, presenting posters and papers, creating and maintaining the chapter’s Facebook page, mentoring new members, and volunteering to serve wherever needed without fail. She is probably best known in the group for her New Orleans’ hospitality. Her social and outgoing nature brings people together and gets the good times going. Everyone knows Jennifer, and everyone knows that she is always there to help and support the membership however she can. The DSA is the SCC’s highest honor, and Jennifer has rightfully earned it. Congratulations, Jennifer! We are so proud of you!

Fire Suppression System Testing in Isché Library, Fourth Floor

On Wednesday October 19th & Thursday October 20th, from 8 AM to 4 PM, routine testing of the waterless fire suppression system will be taking place in the library rare books room, on the 4th floor of the Resource Center Building.

Announcements will be made throughout testing to let building occupants know that these systems are being tested and that evacuation will not be necessary.

Testing will involve periodically activating fire alarm strobe lights and audible alarms (speakers and horns) on the floors being tested. When all testing has concluded, an announcement will be made so that all occupants will know that the testing is complete.
Thank you for your patience.
