Jay Sexter Library
The educational resources required for your academic success can be found at the Jay Sexter Library. With print and digital resources as well as medical models and equipment, there are numerous ways to engage and learn.
Within the next few weeks, the Touro College and University System (TCUS) libraries will be migrating to OpenAthens - an account management service that will provide access to all library resources with one single sign-on via the TouroOne Portal. Be on the lookout for more information from the Library!
Every new library user is assigned a 14 digit library barcode number to check out materials. If you are an on-campus student, your library barcode number will be attached to the back of your ID badge. If you are an online student, you will not receive an ID badge. All incoming students will have their library barcode number sent to their Touro email accounts along with instructions on registering for remote access. Online students must be sure to activate and check their Touro email accounts for this information.
Please refer to the Journals page. You can search by journal title, keywords in the journal title, or ISSN to see the library’s holdings. Search results show the databases that include a specific journal title’s content and a date range of available coverage. Click on the database name to access the journal.
PubMed is one of the premier indexing and abstracting databases of biomedical literature. It is produced by the National Library of Medicine and the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) and is freely available to all. PubMed @ TUN utilizes LinkOut, a cooperative service between NCBI and many database providers, allowing you to search the PubMed database and then link out to full-text articles in our subscribed databases.
All of the library’s e-books are listed in the Library Catalog. When you do a search in the Library Catalog, your search results will include all of the e-books, print books, print journals, DVDs, CDs, flashcards, and anatomical models in the Jay Sexter Library’s collection.
To access the full text of an e-book found in the catalog, click on the button that says, “View Full Text” (if you are looking at a list of search results), or the “access the electronic book” link if you are in an individual book record. You will have to use your library login and password if you are off campus. You can also access a specific e-book title through the database that includes it if you know the name of the database (the database name will be listed as an author or title in the individual e-book record).
To renew items that you have checked out from the library, visit the Library Catalog. In the upper right-hand corner, you will see a “Login” link. Clicking this link will take you to a login page, where you will need to enter your full name and your 14-digit library barcode number (no spaces). After logging in, you will see a list of your checked-out items. To renew an item, check the box next to it and click the “Renew Selected Items” button, or use the “Renew All” button to renew everything at once. Your due dates should change to new times/dates.
You may also renew materials in-person, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling 702.777.1740. Library materials can only be renewed one time before they must be returned.
