    Date and time: Friday, January 4, 2019, 10:00 – 10:30 AM PST

    Every year, the Medical Subject Headings are updated. Join this session to learn:

    • How does this affect your PubMed searches?
    • What happens when a term gets changed, or added, or 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?

    This class includes some content from the class Advanced PubMed: MeSH.
