September 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. For a PDF of a bibliography of this month’s additions,click 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.

September’s Diversity and Inclusivity Book Club Pick: Diversity Visibility

“I am living in a time where disabled people are more visible than ever before. And yet while representation is exciting and important, it is not enough. I want and expect more. We all should expect more. We all deserve more.” – Alice Wong, Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century

This month the Diversity and Inclusivity Book Club, hosted by the School of Public Health’s Diversity and Inclusivity Committee, discussed Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century edited by Alice Wong as its September read.

Disability Visibility  is a collection of essays by disabled people, written in part for the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Disability Visibility provides readers a chance to hear a wide-range of first-hand stories about living with disabilities in the modern era.

Although the discussion may have ended, your access to Diversity Visibility hasn’t. The library provides access to an eBook version through EBSCO, with a limit to one user at a time.

For more about the Diversity and Inclusivity Book Club, including information on next month’s Book Club pick and meeting time, visit the Committee’s page on the School of Public Health Website or email

Campus Closure 9/15/2020 – Hurricane Sally

LSUHSC New Orleans campuses (both downtown and Dental) will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday September 15th, in advance of Hurricane Sally.

Additionally the Isché Library will close at 6pm this evening.

We hope to reopen on Wednesday, September 16th at 8am at both Libraries.

Dental Library closed Sept. 9th

Due to a water outage at the School of Dentistry campus, the Dental Library is closed for the remainder of the day, September 9, 2020.

The Isché Medical Library on the Downtown campus is open its usual hours for today until 8pm. If you wish to come to the Downtown campus, please remember you will need your LSUHSC-NO i.d. to enter any buildings.

Library staff are available to assist you.

Access to Isché Library 9/5/2020

Due to construction work on campus, the Isché Library will be accessible from the 1st floor entrance to the Resource Center Building only. An LSUHSC ID badge is necessary to enter.

Labor Day Hours

Both the Isché and Dental Libraries will be closed on Monday, September 7th in observance of the Labor Day holiday. In addition, the Isché Library will be closed on Sunday, September 6th.

Links to textbooks for nursing programs

We are aware that some students are having trouble accessing textbooks from links provided in their syllabus. The links go to an old system for off campus access and they will not work.

Any link that starts with http://0- is affected. Also, if the links do not begin https://ezproxy you will have trouble accessing the book off campus.

Some links also require a certain format for them to work. If you are given a link to a ClinicalKey book that does not have “dura/browse” anywhere in it, then it will also not work correctly regardless of whether you are on campus or off campus.

These are the correct links for some of the textbooks we know you are trying to access:

If you have trouble accessing any textbooks, please contact us.

If you are an instructor, we are more than happy to look over any links you have in a syllabus or are posting in Moodle. Again, please don’t hesitate to contact us so we can ensure students can get to their required materials.

E-mail log in for resources now working

UPDATE: The problem with using e-mail to log in to Library resources appears to have been fixed. However, if you run into any trouble, you can always use one of the alternate log in methods described below.

We are currently experiencing issues with the system that allows you to log in to Library resources using your e-mail. This problem also affects web mail.

All connections through Citrix appear to be working fine at the moment.

If you have a Library barcode and PIN, you can use that to log in by clicking on the green bar when you get to this screen:

Screenshot of log in screen

You can also log in here using your LSUHSC-NO user i.d. (everything before the in your e-mail address) and your current password.

If you need any help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.

Libraries open regular hours Thursday, Aug 27

Both Libraries are open their regular hours today, Thursday, August 27, 2020.

The Isché Library will close at 8pm and the Dental Library will close at 5pm.

PubMed e-mail workaround

If you follow the Library’s link to PubMed and then want to e-mail citations, you will see an error message that will not allow you to proceed:

Screenshot of PubMed e-mail error

This is caused by the reCAPTCHA that is now required to send e-mails from PubMed not working nicely with our EZproxy system. Unfortunately, there are no plans for PubMed to make changes that will allow this functionality to work correctly when using a link to PubMed that goes through EZproxy.

If you want to e-mail articles from PubMed, you can go directly to, perform your search, and then e-mail the articles with no problem. Unfortunately, you will lose some of the features our link to PubMed offers, such as turning on our WebBridge LR Link Resolver to check for the availability of articles in all citations in PubMed.

However, if you use the e-mail function frequently and are therefore going to PubMed directly, there are a couple of options that will help you regain some of these features lost by not using our link.

First, if you use Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Brave, or Vivaldi browsers, you can install the LibKey Nomad extension that makes getting to the full text of articles super easy in PubMed. Check out our LibKey Nomad LibGuide for more information.

Second, you can sign up for a My NCBI account. Once you have done this, there is a setting you can change that will turn on our WebBridge LR Link Resolver icons in PubMed. More information about this setting and a video walkthrough is available on our WebBridge LR Link Resolver LibGuide.

If you need help with this or any other Library resources, please contact us.
