Chrome available in Citrix

An update to the Citrix has added Chrome as an alternate browser. You will see a shortcut to it on your Citrix desktop as well as in the Windows start menu:

Instructions about installing and using Citrix can be found from the IT Help Desk. One thing to remember, though, is that if you’re using an Apple computer, Citrix works best through Chrome.

PubMed: now with one-click PDFs!

Thanks to our subscription to BrowZine and their new tool LibKey Link, we are happy to announce that starting today for many articles in PubMed you can get to the PDF with just one click!

You will need to follow the link to PubMed with a special code that turns on our link resolver. When viewing the abstract of a particular citation, click our “Check Full Text” icon:

When available, you will be taken directly to the PDF of the article. If that is not possible, you will be brought instead to our WebBridge Link Resolver results page with the available options to retrieve that article.

If you are off-campus, you will be asked to authenticate either through OpenAthens or with your Library barcode and PIN.

For more information about BrowZine, see our LibGuide. We also have LibGuides available for Off Campus access, the link resolver, and OpenAthens.

JAMA Oncology now available

The Libraries are happy to report that we’ve added a subscription to JAMA Oncology that became active with the new month.

We know this is a title many of you have been trying to use, and we are glad to finally be able to offer it.

If you have any questions about this or any other Library resource, please contact us.

New look for the Link Resolver

Today we’ve launched a new and hopefully improved look for the WebBridge LR Link Resolver results page. All of the links you’re used to are still there, but now they’re in a slightly different presentation:

If you need more information about the WebBridge Link Resolver, you can take a look at the LibGuide that will walk you through the basics.

Summer Hours – June & July

The Libraries will have Summer Hours for the months of June and July. The Ische Library will close at 10pm Sunday-Thursday and at 6pm on Fridays. Opening times and Saturday hours will remain the same. The Dental Library will close at 6pm Monday-Thursday and will be closed on weekends.

Elsevier Products at LSUHSC-NO

Joining a growing number of universities and government entities who find themselves at odds with Elsevier’s pricing or policies, LSU has recently announced that it will terminate its “big deal” with Elsevier at the end of the year. Understandably, some are asking how this will affect LSUHSC-NO.

LSU’s action is no cause for alarm on our own campus. Our collections are not directly connected with those of LSU. And we recently entered a deal with Elsevier for the Freedom Collection, adding several hundred relevant journals to our collection and many more that may appeal to the “long tail” users of our community. Our Elsevier agreement is one of our most cost-effective and, because of a three-year controlled-cost agreement, likely to stay that way for a while.

We feel solidarity with the librarians at LSU and the University of California.  We recognize that the rising costs of biomedical literature access far outstrips the costs of inflation. And we acknowledge that the current system in which those who produce the literature must also pay to use it is greatly flawed. These are concerns LSUHSC-NO faculty may wish to address on multiple fronts such as tenure and promotion and scholarly communication processes before we find ourselves in crises mode.

Accessing resources during system outage

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.

Eduroam on the road
