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

Corporate Names

  • MeSH does contain some corporate names and uniform titles as part of its vocabulary
  • Catalogers generally do not use corporate names or uniform titles found in MeSH but use the form of name established in the National Authority File
    • The MeSH heading is annotated "CATALOG: use NAF entry"

  • Example:
