New Carville Leprosarium Video

The AOL education series, What Remains has released a new video (less than 5 minutes) on the National Hansen’s Disease Center Museum in Carville, Louisiana. The video was filmed in December 2013.

The Libraries partnered with the Hansens’ Disease Museum in 2011 to digitize the patient newsletter, the Star to make it more widely available to researchers.

Link Resolver changes for Web of Knowledge/Science

The recent redesign of Web of Knowledge and Web of Science has also changed where the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver is found in these databases.

When you first perform a search, to find out whether the Library has access to the full-text of an article click on the “Full Text” button found below the citation:

WoS Citation Summary 1

You will then see a smaller window with the WebBridge Link Resolver icon:

WoS Citation Summary 2

If you are viewing the abstract of a citation, look for the turquoise “Full Text” button above the citation:

WoS Abstract View 1

When you click this button a small box will once again appear with the WebBridge Link Resolver icon:

WoS Abstract View 2

Additionally, the “Holdings” link searches INNOPAC, the Library’s Catalog.

If you need more information, please check the Library’s WebBridge Link Resolver LibGuide or contact us if you need any help.
