Words from the Library

The LSUHSC library, with help with contributing funds from the School of Medicine now provides an institutional license for Access Medicine.

Access Medicine (http://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/databases/accessmedicine.aspx) is a dynamic resource that includes online textbooks, case studies, videos, drug monographs, USMLE review questions, diagnostic tools, and more.  The online book collection is very popular and it includes top titles such as Harrison’s Principles of Internal Medicine (http://innopac.lsuhsc.edu/record=b1146194~S1), Dr. Michael Levitzky’s Pulmonary Physiology (http://innopac.lsuhsc.edu/record=b1142321~S1), Dr. Patricia Molina’s Endocrine Physiology (http://innopac.lsuhsc.edu/record=b1142488~S1), and the Current Diagnosis & Treatment series, just to name a few!

As a bonus, the library now offers expanded access to the Custom Curriculum component of this resource.  Instructors can register their MyAccess profiles for the added capability of developing and managing interactive learning modules where they can assign readings, give quizzes, and track students’ progress.  See the Custom Curriculum web page (http://mhmedical.com/customCurriculum.aspx) for more information or contact the School of Medicine Librarian Liaison, Kathy Kerdoff (kkerdo@lsuhsc.edu) if you have any other questions.

Case Files Collections (http://www.lsuhsc.edu/library/databases/amcfc.aspx) adds over 1,000 case files to our subscription. Cases in basic sciences (i.e., Anatomy, Biochemistry, Microbiology, etc.) and clinical cases (i.e., Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Surgery, etc.) and more.

AccessMedicine and the Case Files Collection are just examples of our many online resources that are available to the LSUHSC Academic Community.
