Finding Appropriate Main Headings

  • You have an item titled: "Skeletal Diseases"
  • Searching Skeletal Diseases in the browser gives you no retrieval
  • Here are two possible options to find the correct descriptor

Option 1

  • Think of a word with a similar root to skeletal, such as skeleton and try searching that in the MeSH Browser

Search Results

Screen capture of MeSH Browser showing record display for Skeleton with a red arrow pointing to Annotation.

Annotation in this record, leads you to search further using the word Bone

Screen capture of MeSH Browser showing record display for Bone Diseases.

Now search Bone Diseases and you retrieve the correct record
