Coronaviruses:



CDC is responding to an outbreak of respiratory disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in China and which has now been detected in almost 70 locations internationally, including in the United States. The virus has been named “SARS-CoV-2” and the disease it causes has been named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals, including camels, cattle, cats, and bats. Rarely, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people such as with MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and now with this new virus (named SARS-CoV-2).

    October 2020 is National Medical Librarians Month

    October, 2020 is National Medical Librarians Month.

    LSU Health Shreveport's medical librarians are an integral part of the healthcare team, and research demonstrates that librarian-led information services and resources improve clinical decision making and patient-care outcomes. Librarians also have a direct impact on the quality of research conducted, by helping users stay current about advances in their specialty areas. Librarians teach students and healthcare providers how to find and evaluate information.

    In addition to maintaining the library’s print and electronic resources, we conduct database training, customized instruction, professional literature searches, and research consultations with LSUH Shreveport Faculty, Fellows & Residents. Trends in information technology and scholarly publishing present exciting opportunities and daunting challenges. As the landscape of medicine and science evolves, we strive to find a balance between competing interests and limited resources, and to plan for a mutable future. In all the uncertainty, however, one thing remains clear: Librarians will be critical partners in the management of information chaos
