MeSH stands for Medical Subject Headings. MeSH is the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus, used for indexing articles for the MEDLINE®/PubMED® database. Each article citation is associated with a set of MeSH terms that describe the content of the article.
MeSH is the language National Library of Medicine indexers use to create tags for citations in MEDLINE and/or PubMed. If you can find the official entry terms instead of using keyword searching, you can focus your search and find better citations.
The Get It button appears when full-text is not available in a particular database. Click the button to search for the full text in the rest of the CSP Library's databases. If full-text is available, you will be provided with a link. If not, you can choose to submit a "Request from another library". We provide more information on how to request partner items on our website.
Sometimes you will find a citation for an article and need to find the full text. Sometimes you only have part of a citation and want to find the full text.
Use these ideas to find the full text of an article.
