Medical and Pharmaceutical Literature

Understanding and using MeSH

MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) are descriptors supplied by experts that help you target specific subject terms in order to help you find literature that is very relevant to your needs. Hashtags, like what you use on social media, are an example of descriptors that help people find information on a topic. The difference between hashtags and subject headings are that hashtags are crowd-sourced and subject headings are applied in a systematic and precise way by experts. This short video tutorial will help you find and use MeSH as a powerful tool for your literature searches.
