The Dykes Library now subscribes to two new resources in the form of McGraw-Hill E-books made possible through an Office of Cultural Enhancement and Diversity (OCED), Center of Excellence grant. The McGraw-Hill Exam Review Guides offer peer-to-peer medical review guides to help you earn top marks on USMLE, clerkships, and specialty board exams. Additionally, the McGraw-Hill Medical Handbooks contain essential references connecting you to the latest advances in clinical and therapeutic medicine. Both of these resources can be accessed on or off campus. While off campus, these tools can be accessed remotely by logging in with your Novell or GroupWise ID and password when prompted.
