Changes to the HSLS Journal Collection for 2014

Rising journal subscription costs and the dynamic journal publishing landscape have profound impacts on library collections and budgets. Libraries strive to build collections that meet their users’ needs, but cost-effective management of those collections may require the cancellation of low-use titles. In addition, when journals switch publishers, libraries can either gain access to new titles or lose access to existing ones.

Medical Students Create Research Journal


A group of motivated LSU Shreveport medical students has established the American Medical Student Research Journal (AMSRJ) to make the research and publishing process more accessible to their peers. Authored, reviewed, and edited by medical students in association with faculty mentors, this pilot academic publication is an effort to promote interest in research as well as to provide a platform for the development of critical thinking skills needed to succeed in practice. The student journal will be only the second of its kind in the country.
