Overview

This concise and clearly written book will make your PubMed searches more productive.

MEDLINE, the National Library of Medicine's on-line bibliographic database, is the premiere index to the world's biomedical literature. It is the primary component of PubMed. MEDLINE is exquisitely organized: each journal article is manually indexed under an average of a dozen Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), one or more publication types, and more. An understanding of this organization is essential to effective searching. Any health professional, health sciences student, or researcher will benefit from reading this book. It explains the basics of formulating searches, shows how to put the main indexing elements in MEDLINE to best use, illustrates the importance of Medical Subject Headings (MeSH), provides guidance for framing questions, and backs everything up with practical examples.
