Board of Regents Funding for Textbooks

Contact: btucke@lsuhsc.edu

The State Legislature recently asked the Board of Regents to help reduce higher education book expenses for students. The Regents responded by issuing a grant to academic libraries to license electronic versions of textbooks that students would otherwise purchase individually. The LSU Health Shreveport Library was awarded part of this funding to purchase access to five textbooks used in the School of Allied Health Professions. The following titles can now be read on-line: Antibiotics Simplified, Essentials of Assistive Technologies, Mosby's Manual of Diagnostic and Laboratory Tests, Practical Radiology : a Symptom-Based Approach, Stroke Rehabilitation
