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.

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.

August 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.

The Chronicle of Higher Education Data Breach

The Chronicle of Higher Education has reported a data security incident. Some account holder names, email addresses, usernames, and passwords for some online accounts to chronicle.com, philanthropy.com, and/or chroniclevitae.com were posted online by unauthorized parties. Account holders should have received notification from the Chronicle, and the Chronicle reset all passwords. If account holders use the same usernames and passwords for any other online account, The Chronicle recommends that they change the passwords to those accounts as well. Complete information about what happened can be read at https://www.chronicle.com/page/notice-of-data-breach.

LibKey.io makes finding articles easy!

Image of LibKey.io Logo

We are happy to announce the availability of a new product from Third Iron, makers of BrowZine, LibKey Link, and LibKey Nomad, that makes getting articles using just a PMID and DOI not only possible but also incredibly easy!

This new product is called LibKey.io and it combines the easy linking you’ve enjoyed from the other Third Iron products with our Library’s journal holdings and link resolver to make retrieving articles as simple and easy as it has ever been.

You can access LibKey.io from the Library’s homepage under the Quick Links section:

Once you click the LibKey.io link, you will see a page where you can enter a PMID or a DOI for the article you need:

Once you enter a PMID or a DOI, you will be presented with a page that typically has many options for getting that article:

In some cases or if there are no sources for the full text of that article, you will be brought to our WebBridge LR link resolver where you may find other sites where the article is available or the option to request it through Interlibrary Loan.

You can find out more about LibKey.io in this new section of the BrowZine LibGuide, including a quick video walk through. We hope you will find this new service helpful, but if you have any questions about this or any other Library resources, please contact us.

UPDATE: EZproxy available

UPDATE: The upgrade has been completed and all off campus links using EZproxy are working. If you encounter any trouble, please contact us.

Off campus links that use EZproxy are currently unavailable due to a system update.

You can log in directly at some publishers’ sites using OpenAthens in the interim.

New link resolver/LibKey page

Regular users of the Library’s link resolver in PubMed may have noticed a new screen when checking the availability of full-text for an article. Recent updates to the BrowZine/LibKey suite of products has brought not only this new screen but a slew of changes we hope will make getting to articles you need much easier.

When you click our link resolver icon in PubMed, you will often see a page that looks like this featuring a new variety of options to get that article, its supplemental content, or even to see the article within its issue in BrowZine:

Screenshot of article linking choices

At first it may seem like quite a lot to take in, but you have the option to automatically link to the PDF when possible. When you check that box, your preference is remembered for the entirety of your session.

Although you may have noticed it when using PubMed, this screen can be seen in all of the BrowZine/LibKey products. We have more exciting news to announce in the coming days, so stay tuned for even more streamlined ways to get the articles you need!

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

LibKey Nomad logo

The LibKey Nomad browser extension, previously only available for Chrome, can now be installed in Vivaldi, Brave, and Microsoft Edge browsers. This nifty tool enhances PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science, and makes getting to the full-text of articles easy.

These newly-supported browsers allow installations from the Chrome Web Store. To install and configure the extension, follow the instructions we have available on the LibKey Nomad section of our BrowZine Libguide or see it in action on our LibKey Nomad installation video.

Please note that for Microsoft Edge you will need to allow extensions from the Chrome Web Store in order to use LibKey Nomad.

Also, since Chrome is now the default browser in Citrix, you can install LibKey Nomad to use there as well. We have a video that walks you through that process.
