How to Access Online Journals via the LSUHSC
The previous issue of this newsletter detailed how to access journals via PubMed. Because PubMed is not able to link to all of our journal subscriptions, it is often necessary to refer to the library catalog for authoritative records of our online journals. Once in the catalog at http://innopac.lsuhsc.edu, select Isché and Dental Libraries, then List of Journals. Type in either the full journal title or the official abbreviation (Journal of Dental Research or J Dent Res).
In the record for the journal, click on the link under This title is available electronically via.
For most titles, you’ll go directly to the journal if you’re on campus. However, if you’re off-campus, you need to verify your LSUHSC affiliation. When you click on the link in the library catalog record, you’ll get a screen entitled "Millenium Web Access Management (WAM)." The first time you use WAM, type in your name and barcode, leave the PIN blank and then click on Proceed to Database.
In the next screen, retype your name and barcode, then create a PIN and retype it. The PIN should be between 4 and 8 characters. Click on Proceed to Database and you’ll go to the journal homepage.
If you access library databases or journals via Citrix, you won’t need to login via WAM.
Selected journals, such as those published by Quintessence, require a logon ID and password. When you click on the link to the online journal, you’ll be prompted for your LSUHSC user name and password. If you’re on a computer using XP, remember to type in lsumc-master\user name.
Next you’ll see a screen with an ID and password for the journal. Click on the title link, and once the publisher's website appears, login with the given ID and password.
