Comics aren’t just for teens! Graphic medicine explores healthcare and medicine while using the comic format as a medium for learning.
Graphic novels can be helpful tools for practitioners and patients to further the discussion about healthcare in the United States. These books are in fact tools that help bridge the health literacy gap.
To highlight this genre, we have a variety of titles available for check out that explore Alzheimer ’s disease, disabilities, abuse, and mental disorders.
So, come by and check out our new books on the 3rd Floor!
HTTP access has been disabled on the Libraries’ catalog to better ensure its security. If you type the catalog’s address, innopac.lsuhsc.edu into most browsers, it should default to using HTTPS but if it doesn’t or if you follow an older link that hasn’t been updated, the following message:
Switch to HTTPS if you see this message
Please let us know if you have any problems.

If you are a new resident or have a new rotation, you might find it a little difficult to access Library resources from the various hospitals. Unfortunately, the wired and wireless networks at UMC, Children’s, and any of the other hospitals are neither part of nor managed by the Health Sciences Center, and you might even be blocked from getting to many web-based services while on those networks. If you need to access Library resources while at the hospitals, the following will help you get what you need:
- Go to http://www.lsuhsc.edu and choose the Citrix icon
- You can also go to http://citrixweb.lsuhsc.edu directly
- Log on using your LSUHSC user i.d. and password; you may also be prompted to install the Citrix Receiver before you are able to log in
- Choose “Desktop-New”
- When your Citrix session is up and running, go to the Start Menu to open up Internet Explorer
- From the LSUHSC homepage, choose “Libraries” on the left
- You can then choose which resource you would like to use
- To find out whether the Library has access to a particular book or journal, click the link for “Library Catalog/INNOPAC”
- If you wish to search for articles through PubMed, want to use AccessMedicine, or any other databases, choose “Databases” from the left and then go to the page for that resource
- Be sure to click the “Off Campus” link for any database you want
- Citrix sessions are sometimes not recognized as being on campus, so you may also be asked to provide your name, barcode, and PIN that is used to access Library resources when off campus
If you need any assistance with these steps or anything else from the Library, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The migration to our new INNOPAC server is complete. We hope you find speedier service from the system.
Please let us know if you find any errors or problems.
While the Library’s INNOPAC system is offline for maintenance, a number of functions are affected. During this outage the catalog, off-campus access, and link resolver will be unavailable. However, here are a few ways to get the resources you need during this downtime:
- All print books and journals will be available for checkout; although we will be unable to look up holdings and call numbers, Library staff will assist you in finding the materials you need from anything that is on reserve or in the stacks.
- All online resources will be available on campus only; when viewing the available databases be sure to click the “On Campus” link:
- If you need an ebook you can use the eBooks LibGuide to find the on-campus links to the electronic books available from various publishers.
- Although it is also an option for ebooks, the E-Books & E-Journals A to Z List will allow access to the online version of the majority of journals available from the Library.
We hope the outage will not last very long, but Library staff will be ready to answer any questions you have regarding resources while this necessary maintenance is completed. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
