Obtaining Books and Journal Articles
Distance Education Students are
defined as students who are currently enrolled in a course at LSUHSC and
reside outside the Metropolitan New Orleans area. The following interlibrary
loan services are available to our Distance Education students:
LSUHSC Libraries offer an automated system for requesting materials called ILLiad (http://illiad.lsuhsc.edu/illiad/ill.html).
When registering, please be sure to include the letters DE after your
last name (as if you were a jr.), so that the library staff will be certain to treat
your items as distance education requests. All requests (either owned or not)
should be entered into ILLiad for processing.
Books (Owned by LSUHSC
Circulating books owned by LSUHSC Libraries will be shipped to the DE
student at the Librariesí cost, but the student will be required to ship items
back using the USPS or a commercial mail provider. Return information will be enclosed
for your convenience. Return the book on or before the due date. Books may be
renewed by telephone (504-941-8158)
one time only.
Check the Libraries' online catalog to find material (http://innopac.lsuhsc.edu/).
Books (Not Owned by LSUHSC Libraries)
Unfortunately, because of shipping issues, the Library will not fill book
requests for items not owned. Most local public libraries offer interlibrary
loan services for monographs.
Journals (Owned by LSUHSC
Many of the journals owned by the LSUHSC Libraries are available full-text
online via the Libraries' catalog.
An LSUHSC barcode and PIN are required for using full-text journals off-campus.
Please contact the Circulation Desk at 504-941-8158 for more information.
Downloading these articles directly is appropriate.
Articles that are owned by the
LSUHSC Libraries in print only will be photocopied and mailed or faxed
without charge. However, there is a 50-page per article maximum, and only 5
requests will be processed per day. Check the
Libraries' catalog to find materials.
Journals (Not Owned by
Articles that are not owned by the LSUHSC Libraries will be borrowed from other
libraries. Some articles are available free of cost, but many require either
borrowing or copyright fees; the minimum charge to accept is $11. Indicate
whether or not you are willing to pay on the individual article request form. A
monthly invoice will be generated and should be paid promptly. Failure to
reimburse the Library will cause a cessation of service.
Reserve materials are available in the Library and may not be sent through
ILL. If a required reading is needed, contact your instructor or the Library
and arrangements to accommodate your need will be attempted.
