Update on Library Services
The Dental Library, located in Building 3005, Room
104, on South Campus, now houses over 200 dental monographs, many
of which have been published since 2005. To see the list of books
received since Fall 2006, go to Recent Acquisitions in this issue;
previous new additions to the library collection since Katrina are listed in the
Summer 2006 Library Explorer.
forget that the library also subscribes to electronic journals,
databases, and books. All electronic (as well as print) books and journals are listed in
the library catalog (Innopac) where you can find links to the online
version. Databases are also listed in Innopac as well as in a comprehensive list
of databases and search systems under
Resources. Until we return to the school in New Orleans, all
access is remote or off-campus, requiring login with a library patron
barcode and PIN. Contact the dental librarians if you need a
barcode, have forgotten your PIN, or have any questions about using WAM.
PubMed Search Tips: Accessing Full-Text Articles
In order to search PubMed and see links to free
through LSUHSC library subscriptions, you must go to PubMed via links on
the dental library homepage.
One link is found under Databases and the other is located directly
under the search box near the top of the page. These links
take you to a screen where you
then select on-campus or off-campus access. When you select off-campus,
you next see the Web Access Management (WAM) screen, which requires
login with your name, library patron barcode and PIN. After you
search in PubMed and retrieve a list of articles, click on the authors'
names of your selected articles. You'll see one, two, or three icons below the journal
title. The LSUHSC Libraries icon in the example below indicates
that there is free full-text.
icons indicate that this article is available online.
Click on either the publisher or the LSUHSC icon to link to the article.
If you see the LSUHSC Libraries Print
Collection icon by itself, free full-text is not available through
PubMed. This icon will take you to the journal entry in the
library catalog (Innopac) where you can check
library holdings. PubMed is not an authoritative record of
our online subscriptions so you should check the Innopac record for the
because you will often find a link to full-text here that does not appear
