Publications Donated to the Dental Library
Remote Access to
Databases & Full-text Journals
Journal Articles Online
The LSUHSC library has made it
easy for you to access online journals by adding links in Innopac (the
library catalog), Ovid, and PubMed. If the library subscribes to a
journal, the Innopac record indicates if free full-text is available; a link to the journal web site
allows you to
locate and print the PDF format of an article. Records for article citations in Ovid and PubMed
include links to either the full-text on the publisher's web site or to
the Innopac record for the journal. Although the method of access to full-text varies with each
journal and each database, Innopac records always contain a link
indicating when full-text is available for LSUHSC patrons.
Access to Databases & Full-text Journals
To access many of the library's electronic resources from PC's not on the
LSUHSC network, login via remote access is required. ScienceDirect,
Cochrane Library, and full-text journals are examples of these resources.
Because the current, more secure Virtual Private Network (VPN) does not
work for remote access to library resources, the library has implemented a
new mechanism called Web Access Management (WAM).
LSUHSC library patrons attempt to retrieve an online resource from a
remote location, they will be prompted to login by providing the
Name (first name last
Library barcode number
(with or without spaces)
Pin (create it the first
time you login).
If you are interested in
remote access to databases and journals, check your LSUHSC ID to confirm
that a library barcode is on the back. Please note that this is not
the same barcode used to check-out clinic records. If you need
a barcode, visit either the dental library or the Isché Medical Library,
and if you have trouble connecting to an electronic resource, call the
dental library at 504-619-8550.
