Serials Solutions Includes Medical Subject Headings in 360 Services

Jan 08, 2010

Serials Solutions added the ability to search resources by Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) to KnowledgeWorks and the 360 Core E-Journal Portal. MeSH is a "controlled vocabulary" created and maintained by the United States National Library of Medicine, developed for the purpose of categorizing and indexing journal articles and other forms of content. Users of KnowledgeWorks and the 360 Core will now be able to use the updated 2009 definitions and hierarchy to specify search criteria and browse material.

This new ability is the latest in a series of improvements to 360 Core's medically-oriented functionality, including the addition of 1.2 million National Library of Medicine ebook MARC records and the integration of PubMed's LinkOut service.
