McGraw-Hill Access Collections

A guide on the resources available in Gumberg Library's McGraw-Hill Access Collections

Faculty Resources

The Access collections offer additional content for faculty who verify for Instructor Level Access. With this additional level of access, faculty can view Content Maps for different disciplines, group study tools, and share persistent links to content from the Access collections with their students. This additional content does not integrate into Canvas and other learning platforms, and Instructor Level content is only so far available for AccessMedicine and AccessPharmacy.


Requirements for Instructor Level Access

An Access Profile is required to apply for instructor level access. Faculty will need to email McGraw-Hill at the contact provided below with their institutional email and include their full professional signature to be verified as an instructor. Faculty will then need to wait for confirmation before they can access additional instructor material.


McGraw Hill Content Maps

Content Maps gather resources from across all Access collection sites that could be used to support a specific education program as well as practicing clinicians. Content Maps can be found on McGraw Hilll's Access User Center as downloadable documents that can include Access resources that Duquesne University does not have. Some examples of Content Maps that would be useful for programs at Duquesne include:

  • Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice
  • Doctor of Pharmacy Program
  • Family Nurse Practitioner
  • Medical Student Clerkships
  • Physician Associate or Physician Assistant (PA)
  • Undergraduate Medical Education
  • USMLE Step 1
  • USMLE Step 2
  • USMLE Step 3

Study Tools

Faculty have additional study tools to use with their students including exporting customized collections of materials with persistent links, and downloadable Instructor's Guides.
