INNOPAC, our library system, will not be available starting at 7am on Tuesday, May 21st, and it’s estimated it could be out for up to four hours. This outage means that you will not be able to look up anything through the Library’s online catalog, and the link resolver in all databases will not work as well. There are, however, other options to find the resources you need during this time.
The Discovery/EDS Health search will still function and can help you locate a specific journal, book, or article:
There are many options presented that will still work, but some do rely on the system in order to work. As a result, any options to check the Library’s catalog or to use the WebBridge Link Resolver will not be available. However, particularly in the case of articles, there are many other options that can get you to what you need:
Another option to find a particular ebook or journal is the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List.
If you need to access any resource when off-campus, you will need to use your LSUHSC-NO e-mail and password through OpenAthens; you will not be able to log in using your Library barcode and PIN while the system is unavailable:
Even though INNOPAC, the Library’s catalog, will not be available, Library staff will have other ways to get to journals and resources during this downtime, so please contact us if you need help.
