  • Victoria University provides video guide on searching for research literature in PubMed. The guide includes using Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) and covers why truncation and phrase searching might not get the best results.
  • Prairie View A&M University has created a guide titled MEDLINE, PubMed & Medical Subject Headings (MeSH). Under the title 4 Steps to Using the MeSH Database, note that you can restrict to MeSH Major Topic so that your search will retrieve only citations where your subject is one of the main topics discussed in the article. This means you don't get results where the concept is mentioned, but not the main focus. It also talks about when NOT to use MeSH.
