Every year, the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) are updated. How does this affect your PubMed searches? What happens when a term gets changed, added, removed or moved to a different part of the MeSH hierarchy? How do you accommodate vocabulary changes over time in your comprehensive searches? How do you check your saved searches and alerts? This course shows you how with brief demos and interactive exercises.

This course is intended for expert searchers, and assumes that a learner understands that:

  • Restricting a PubMed search to MeSH terms eliminates non-indexed records from your PubMed results
  • A comprehensive search of PubMed must account for both indexed and non-indexed records
