Easter Library Hours

Easter Eggs

Easter Eggs

 

The Libraries will closed for the Easter Holiday from Friday, April 18th through Sunday, April 20th. Additionally, the Isché Library will close at 8 pm on Thursday, April 17th.

Both Libraries will re-open on Monday, April 21st at 8 am.

It came from the stacks

While moving the dental books and journals we came across several books we’d like to tell everyone about in a series of posts in the continuing saga of “It Came From The Stacks” (insert foreboding music here…)

Our first book is a classic of dentistry from the Dental Library’s Old and Rare Collection.  This over sized book, published in 1844, is by Paul B Goddard and is titled The Anatomy, Physiology and Pathology of the Human Teeth; with the most approved methods of treatment, including operations, and the method of making and setting artifical teeth; with thirty plates, also known as “Goddard on the Teeth”.

Goddard on the Teeth

Goddard on the Teeth

When “Goodard on the Teeth” was published, it was described in a review in American Journal of Medical Sciences as a “practical treatment on the subject of the teeth”.  It is praised by the reviewer: “… the work is got up in the handsomest manner.  The plates are indeed the best specimens of lithography we have seen executed in this country.”  This book contains some remarkable images head and neck anatomy, microscopic structure of teeth. dental equipment, a four step pictorial description of extracting teeth using a key, and various forms of artificial teeth and plates, among others.

Goddard plate

This is a very interesting book that is exemplary of the beginnings of modern dentistry.  If you would like to take a look at it in person, please contact the Dental Library and make arrangements to come see it.  We’d love to share our old and rare treasures with you.

Computer Lab Now Available for Online Student Testing

The Library Lab, located on our fourth floor, houses fourteen computers for student use. We are proud to announce that those computers are now enabled for use with Respondus Lockdown browser, which gives students the ability to complete online testing in a private browser.

Another year gone by…

Lucky 7 Clipart

 

It’s the 7th anniversary of the Libraries’ blog and we’re definitely feeling lucky despite our numbers being in the unlucky 1300′s. It’s OK, we’ll hit 1400 by May probably.  Of those 1379 posts, 117 were published within the last calendar year.

We try to publish timely information on outages and changes to our subscribed products. But if there is anything we’re missing, don’t hesitate to tell us.

New Databases via EBSCOhost

Because the LSUHSC Libraries work with a state consortia, LOUIS, we have gained access to 10 new databases via the EBSCOhost platform:

In addition, three existing databases will be removed in June. These are Computer Science Index, Internet & Personal Computing Abstracts and World History Collection.

While these are not primary resources for our Library, they may be of interest to some researchers.

 

PubMed Beyond the Basics: Library Lunchtime Learning

The Dental Library staff hope you’ll join us on Thursday, March 13, at noon in the Copping Room (2309) as we discuss how to more effectively use PubMed through its more advanced search and citation management features, such as Clinical Queries, Medical Subject Headings, filters, citation matchers, and My NCBI.

If you plan to attend, please RSVP with an email to rpremo@lsuhsc.edu.
