Medical Terminology: Databases

Basic guide to library resources for students in Medical Terminology.


MeSH (Medical Subject Headings), the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus, is used for indexing articles for the MEDLINE®/PubMED® database. Each article is indexed with MeSH terms describing the content of the article.  A search with MeSH entry terms  allows you to focus your search and find more relevant citations.
