Remote Access to Library Resources
The LSUHSC-NO libraries have established a system, Web Access
Management, that allows patrons to access many library resources,
including databases and electronic journals and books, from off-campus.
Web Access Management (or WAM for short), requires you to log in at the
beginning of each browser session when you click on one of the linked
resources from our catalog or website.
Three items are necessary for you to log in to WAM:
- Name (first and last name
as you registered in the library)
- Library barcode number (14
digit number on the back of your LSUHSC ID)
If you don't have a library barcode, please see us in the
library in New Orleans or Baton Rouge so we can issue one to you. This is not the barcode
that you used to check out charts when the New Orleans campus
- PIN (you create this
combination of up to 8 numbers or letters the first time you use WAM)
For remote access to databases,
select the “Off Campus” link:
For journals, click on the link
in the catalog record:
You will be taken to the WAM
Click on "Proceed
to the Database." In the next WAM screen, retype your name and
barcode, then create a PIN.
The next screen will allow you
access to resources just as if you were in the library in New Orleans!
