Libraries closing at noon 2/15

The Libraries will close at noon on Monday, February 15th due to weather conditions.

The Libraries are also already scheduled to be closed on Tuesday, February 16th for Mardi Gras in an LSU System-mandated holiday.

Both Libraries will reopen on Wednesday, February 17th at 8am.

February Faculty Publications

A new selection of articles have been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Ische Library. These eight articles, as well as all of the articles in our Faculty Publications database, 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. With the currently changes, we’ve decided to post the publications digitally. Check out the display below:


Publications cited in the Faculty Publications database are harvested weekly from a variety of sources, such as PubMedSCOPUS, 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. A PDF of a bibliography of this month’s additions will soon be available 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.

Carnival Hours

With no parades happening this year, the Libraries will maintain their current hours, except that the Isché Library will close at 6pm on Lundi Gras (February 15th) at 6pm.

Both Libraries will be closed for Mardi Gras (February 16th), as this is a university holiday. Go eat some king cake and check out some House Floats and stay safe!

Isché 5th Floor – Emergency Plumbing Repair

An emergency plumbing repair is scheduled for Wednesday evening, February 10th. This will include cutting out a large cast iron pipe so it will be both noisy and smelly while the work is being conducted. This will happen on the 5th floor of the Isché Library in the corner closest to Bolivar and Gravier. We apologize for the inconvenience.

5th Floor Noise and Relocation of Journals

There is a plumbing issue on the 5th Floor of the Library. As a result of the measures that will need to be taken to fix the problem, there will be a lot of noise and movement on the floor for the foreseeable future.

Journals have been relocated in order to accommodate the necessary demolition and repairs. If you need assistance retrieving a print journal for anything from Journal of Toxicology Toxin Reviews through Journal of Vascular Surgery or Tissue and Cell through Virchows Archiv, please ask Library staff for assistance.

Also, please avoid sitting in the immediate area as it will not be conducive to studying.

All of this has been caused by coffee grounds poured down a sink. The moral of this story, then, is to find more appropriate places to dispose of coffee grounds other than a sink because you never know what it might cause.
