MeSH - Medical Subject Headings

Similar to books in a catalog, each article appearing in a database is assigned one or more subject categories so users can easily locate resources based on their individual needs. Searching for articles within subject headings is a  handy shortcut when filtering your search results.



Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) are subject-specific categories and vocabulary assigned to medical resources. Created and curated by the National Institute of Health's Library of Medicine, they provide "a hierarchically-organized terminology for indexing and cataloging of biomedical information such as MEDLINE/PUBmed and other NLM databases."
