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?
Participants will be able to:
- Describe how the MeSH vocabulary is maintained
- Explain how the addition, revision, deletion and rearrangement of MeSH terms affect your PubMed searches
- Check your saved searches and alerts for needed changes
