5th Floor noise warning for week of February 26th

Rows of library shelves with stacks of books

During the week of February 26, 2024, crews will be on the 5th Floor to remove the items and shelving from the Prieur Street side of the floor. It will be very noisy while they work and we will also need to limit the seating in the immediate area.

Rows of library shelves roped off

The tables and carrels on the Bolivar Street side of the 5th Floor may offer some respite from the noise, along with the study areas on the 3rd and 4th Floors.

While this is happening, please be courteous to others who may have relocated due to the disruption on the 5th Floor.

UPDATE: EZproxy login issues

UPDATE: February 19, 2024: the problems have been resolved and you should now be able to log into EZproxy using either link.

February 19, 2024: We are currently experiencing issues with the secondary username and password login for EZproxy.

When you see the EZproxy login page, you will only be able to use the first link that will ask for your complete LSUHSC email address and current password:

February Faculty Publications

A new selection of articles has been added to the Faculty Publications display in the Isché Library. These eight articles, as well as all the articles in LSU Health Digital Scholar, 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. Check out the display below:

LSUHSC Digital Scholar is an institutional repository and is a service of the LSU Health Science Center Libraries. Research and scholarly output included here has been selected and deposited by the Libraries, as well as individual university departments and centers on campus.  

Publications cited in LSU Health Digital Scholar are harvested from a variety of sources, such as PubMed, SCOPUS, 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. You can access LSU Health Digital Scholar at https://digitalscholar.lsuhsc.edu/.  

If you have an article that you would like us to highlight or if you have any questions regarding the display or the database, you can contact our Librarians at reference@lsuhsc.edu

Emergency Dental Campus Closure 1/26/2024

January 26, 2024 – the Dental Campus (including the Dental Library) closed at noon today because of a water main break. Stay tuned to see if the Library can open on Sunday.

Notice regarding alumni access to Library resources

We have received reports that alumni are being informed they can access Library resources online once they receive an alumni email account. This is incorrect. Alumni do not have access to the Library’s online resources and subscriptions.

Alumni who have been issued an alumni email cannot access Library resources due to licensing restrictions.

If you need any more information or have any questions, please contact us.

5th Floor Project Update

The major project on the 5th Floor of the Library to create space for an IT data center has reached a milestone. We have completed shifting the print journal collection, so the floor will be markedly quieter for a while.

The next phase of the project, which will entail clearing and tearing down of the shelving on the Prieur Street side of the floor, is tentatively scheduled to commence in the summer. We will post signage warning of increased noise and commotion once we have a better idea of when these next steps will start.

Although the print volumes have been removed, we still have some work to do for the affected journals’ records in our Library catalog. If you need assistance locating a print journal, please don’t hesitate to ask for help.

If you have any questions about this or any other Library services and/or resources, please contact us.
