This library guide showcases these resources and explain their best use and practices in preparation for COMLEX Level 1 and USMLE Step 1. All of these resources demonstrated are free for DMU students, as access has been supplied by the DMU library. Test preparation can be overwhelming and expensive, and this guide aims to streamline the process of researching, locating, and utilizing these resources to help students be better prepared.

The Collaborative Library Community Learning Project centers on creating a supportive community of scholarly communication and research. This project involved two sets of events. The first part of the project involved presenting to online Department of Public Health students on some effective research tools and services (October 2022). The second part of the project was to promote library services and resources during National Library Week (April 2023).
