All volumes of New England Journal of Medicine now available online

In what is certain to be a welcome addition to our collection, we are happy to announce that all volumes of New England Journal of Medicine are available online. You now have access to all articles published since 1812 for this important source.

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

New journal archives now available

We are happy to announce we have expanded the back issues of a number of journals, and they are now available online.

First, we’ve greatly expanded our access to now offer all issues published for Science going back to its start in July 1880.

We also now have online the older volumes of the majority of Clinics of North America journals. These are available on the ScienceDirect platform.

You can get to all of these by going to the Library’s Catalog, E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, as well as through the Library’s link resolver and directly through the publishers’ sites.

If you need help or have questions about these or any other Library resources, contact us.

Construction at the Dental Library

Starting Monday, 6/13/2022, contractors will begin repairing the exterior walls and windows in the Dental Library. The perimeter of the Library will be blocked off and there will be some noise, especially at the beginning of the project. Construction is expected to take 3-4 weeks.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. If you need a quiet place to study, please use the Isché Library on the downtown campus. It is on the 3rd floor of the Administration and Resource Building at 433 Bolivar St.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during this process.

Fixed: Wiley journals access problems

June 9, 2022 UPDATE: This problem has been resolved, so you should have no trouble accessing Wiley journals on and off campus. If you need help, please contact us.

June 8, 2022 UPDATE: We are having this problem again, so logging in through OpenAthens is the only way to access Wiley journals both on and off campus. We will update when we have more information.

May 26, 2022 UPDATE: The problem has been fixed. You should now be able to access all Wiley journals both on and off campus. If you have any trouble, though, please let us know.

Original Post:

All Wiley journals are not easily available on campus or via any link that goes through EZproxy for off campus access. If you attempt to get the full text of any Wiley journal through any of these methods, you will be asked to log in or pay.

Logging in directly to Wiley Online Library using OpenAthens is a temporary workaround. Follow these steps to log in when off campus:

  • Click Login/Register on the right of the window

  • Then click Institutional Login

  • Click Sign in with your OpenAthens account
  • In the box to the right, type lsu and select LSU Health Sciences Center Library
  • You should see this screen where you enter your LSUHSC-NO full email address and current network password

If you are on campus, follow the same steps above, but the login screen will look like this where you enter just your LSUHSC-NO username (the first part of your email before the @lsuhsc.edu) and current password:

We will update as soon as we have more information about this problem, but if you need assistance with accessing these journals or with any other Library resources, please contact us.

June 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 will be available to the general public here or via the Library’s webpage. A PDF of a bibliography of this month’s addition will be available here. 

A special thank you to Kathy Kerdolff for doing an amazing job curating the most recent publications from Faculty, Residents, and Students to be displayed each month for so many years.

JAMA Cardiology now available!

We are happy to share that starting today we now have subscribed access to JAMA Cardiology. Our access starts with the first issue published in 2016.

You can find links to the journal in INNOPAC, our online catalog, the E-Journals & E-Books A to Z List, and through the WebBridge LR and LibKey Link link resolvers. The journal can also be accessed directly by going to https://ezproxy.lsuhsc.edu/login?url=https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamacardiology, but please remember that you will be asked to login if you are off campus. In addition, you can get to JAMA Cardiology and all other JAMA Network journals we subscribe to by logging in directly using OpenAthens.

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

To that end, we will require masking in all campus facilities effective Thursday, May 26. 2022. We are requiring a surgical-grade mask that is snugly placed, covering the nose and mouth. KN-95 masks are also acceptable and required for those exposed or recently returning from a previous case of COVID. Of course, the campus clinic can provide further information.
