MeSH is the U.S. National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary used for indexing articles for MEDLINE/PubMed. MeSH terminology provides a consistent way to retrieve information that may use different terminology for the same concepts. MeSH subject headings are used in the OhioLINK Book Catalog and in the PubMed and Medline article databases.
If you do not know a specific heading to search, you may find it more helpful to start with a Keyword search, or use the NLM MeSH Browser to explore available headings.

We offer free interlibrary loan for articles that are not available in our databases.
Please be aware that although articles often arrive quickly, both interlibrary loan books and articles can take ten days or more to arrive. Also, please make sure that you need the type of information you are requesting-check currency and whether it's an article, opinion piece or dissertation.
