While the date and time were chosen to minimize the impact on our customers, we realize that some users may be affected, and we apologize for the inconvenience. Additionally, web-based customer access will be redirected to a webpage stating the planned maintenance times.

The following ProQuest products will be temporarily offline:

Research databases

  • ProQuest platform (search.proquest.com)

Dissertation publishing

Reference management/Research support tools

  • RefWorks

We would like to add our apologies, as well, and hope that your research efforts will not be adversely impacted.

New Year, New Books!

The display is located near the 3rd floor elevator. Subjects include nursing research & theory, physiopathology, genetics, data systems, rehabilitation, neuroscience, orthopedics, and more.

These books and many more are available for checkout or online access. If you have questions about checking out a book or accessing an E-book, do not hesitate to ask a library staff member.

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.
