MeSH on Demand: New Tutorial Available

Posted by on June 22nd, 2018 Posted in: Education & Training, NLM Resources, PubMed, Search Tools


The National Library of Medicine (NLM) has announced a new five-minute video tutorial, MeSH on Demand: Finding MeSH Terms in Your Text. MeSH on Demand is a tool that uses the NLM Medical Text Indexer (MTI) to identify relevant Medical Subject Heading (MeSH) terms in text of up to 10,000 characters. The tool enables users to create their own set of MeSH terms for any text, as well as use those terms to perform custom PubMed searches. The tutorial describes the tool’s interface, and explains its output and principles of operation.

For more information on MeSH on Demand, visit MeSH on Demand Update. This tutorial and many other tutorials are available from the MeSH Learning Resources page and the NLM Learning Resources Database.
