Cataloging and Metadata Management: Using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®) in Cataloging


Publication Types

  • Publication types in MeSH may be used by catalogers unless they are annotated “CATALOG: do not use” or “Not used for indexing or cataloging”

  • A few publication types are used only for historical materials or NLM collaborating partners and these have an annotation of “CATALOG: do not use for current materials”
