Library Facilities

The LSUHS Medical Library provides access to an extensive array of information resources and tools (in print and online), offers research assistance and expertise, and delivers meaningful services to users to support innovation and excellence in education, biomedical research, patient care, and the development of scholars in healthcare. Half of all the electronic resources licensed by the library come from consortial agreements. These consortia are generally with other biomedical or special libraries, allowing the institution to leverage that group buying power to license a stronger collection than independently. The individual resources in such arrangements are chosen to provide breadth and depth in a variety of subject areas. The library’s website is the chief point of access for its electronic resources. The links on the website are available to authorized users when off campus via secure login/virtual private network (VPN). VPN allows users to securely access LSUHSC-S network from anywhere with an Internet connection.

The library has an active teaching program which includes classes in the Medical School and Allied Health curricula. Library faculty members also teach non-curricular classes, seminars and training sessions to Graduate School students, residents, faculty members and other employees. In summary, the LSU Health Sciences Library in Shreveport provides LSUHSC-Shreveport students, faculty and staff with critically important information required for research, patient care, and teaching.
