Interlibrary Loan and Photocopy Fees Increase with the New Fiscal Year
of July 1st, 2000, the prices for interlibrary loan services
(ILL) of the LSUHSC library system have been slightly increased, due to
the general fee increase by the South Central Area Medical Libraries
Consortium in which LSUHSC participates.
LSUHSC-affiliated patrons may see an increase of approximately
$1.00 per article on the amount they were previously paying for articles
that they ordered through ILL. We
will continue to order materials first from lenders with which we have a
reciprocal agreement not to charge, but if the materials are not
available through those libraries, we will resort to ordering from
charging libraries, and patrons will then see the fee increase.
fees for patrons who use the Loansome Doc borrowing system (electronic
document ordering via PubMed or Internet Grateful Med) will also
increase slightly. Health
professionals will now be charged $9.00 per article plus any applicable
copyright fees, whereas nonhealth professionals will be charged $15.00
per article plus any applicable copyright fees.
There is also a $5.00-per-article fee to fax Loansome Doc
library will charge all health professionals $9.00 per article for
photocopy service of items in our collection.
Nonhealth professionals will be charged $25.00 per photocopy.
The $5.00-per-article fax fee applies to all requests.
The table below includes all photocopy and ILL charges.
Searches Now Free to LSUHSC Community
reference librarians are now able to run searches in MEDLINE and most
other databases free for LSUHSC faculty, staff, and students.
For LSUHSC-supported databases, such as Ovid, WebSpirs, Lexis-Nexis
Academic Universe, or InfoTrac, the librarians will no longer charge for
searches. Results of any
length can be e-mailed or saved to a disk and lists of citations with or
without abstracts will be printed free if they are under 50 pages.
in outside database services, such as Dialog or Ovid-online, are billed
to the library on a per-search basis, and these costs will be passed on
to the patron. Unaffiliated health professionals will be charged cost
plus 25%, with a $10.00 minimum. Unaffiliated
nonhealth professionals will be charged cost plus 25%, with a $25.00
minimum. Current members of
the LSUSD Alumni Association receive searches at half price, with a
$5.00 minimum charge.
the next time you need to search online for a list of references,
donít hesitate to contact one of the dental librarians for assistance.
