- The heading, Young Adult, new to MeSH for 2009 indexing, will be added to the "Ages" menu on the Advanced Search screen as Young Adult: 19-24 years.
- Linking ISSN numbers will appear on the MEDLINE format in the ISSN field (IS) with the qualifier, "Linking" as in this example:
IS - 1098-4275 (Linking)
- Users of XML data may want to see additional information including "XML Changes for the NLM 2010 Production Year:"

In early 2010 the Advanced Search feature of PubMed will be re-worked to improve search capabilities. More information will be provided at a later date.
