Alternate for off-campus access to EBSCOhost
UPDATE: As of 3:30pm CDT, our issues with off-campus access to EBSCOhost have been resolved. You might need to clear your browser’s cache and history to recognize any changes, but please contact us if you are still having trouble.
While we are still waiting for our issues with off-campus access to some resources to be resolved, we have come up with a workaround for databases and books available through EBSCOhost.
When off-campus, click this link; you will be asked to enter your LSUHSC user i.d. and password. You will then be taken to this page that displays the i.d. and password that can be used to access EBSCOhost databases such as CINAHL and Academic Search Complete, EBSCO Ebooks, and the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, along with links to the appropriate sites:
Once you click on one of those links, you will see this login page:
Enter the User ID and Password as described on the “Password Protected Database” page, and you should then be able to access the resource you need. If you clicked the link for EBSCOhost, you will be taken to the following page where you can choose which database you would like to use:
Unfortunately, for our Baton Rouge LSUHSC/OLOL patrons, this workaround will not work while you are on the Baton Rouge campus. It will work, though, at any other location off-campus.
We do not have an estimate on when our off-campus issues will be resolved, but if you need any assistance in accessing this or any other Library resources, please do not hesitate to contact us.
