  2. NNLM Webinar: MeSH Changes and PubMed Searching
    Every year, the Medical Subject Headings are updated. Join us for "MeSH Changes and PubMed Searching" 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.
