The Isché Library is currently hosting an exhibit from the Brain Injury Association of Louisiana. This exhibit of masks made by brain injured individuals promotes awareness of the prevalence of brain injury and gives survivors a voice.
The exhibit will be in the Isché Library from September 27th through October 21st. It will move to the Dental Library and will be on display October 23rd through November 7th.
Four of the masks include QR codes which when scanned display a video of the mask maker discussing their mask and their brain injury.
While you were hopefully enjoying your summer break, the Library has been busy adding ebooks! The new database from American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) adds over 200 ebooks to our collection. This extensive collection includes a wide range of pediatric topics, from dermatology to parenting. There are coding manuals and ebooks on practice management, as well as patient guidelines for new parents. There are even a few titles in Spanish.
The AAP database platform includes:
Advanced search capabilities for easy discoverability
Responsive design for mobile optimization
Reading app for smartphones and tablets
You can browse the database or search by topic or title. The titles can also be accessed through the Library catalog. And we also have access to the AAP database of neonatal resuscitation ebooks.
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.
