MeSH indexes and indexed fields

Find the numeric and text indexes available, including fields and subfields indexed, in the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) file.

 Note:

  • The Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) file authority file is not available in Connexion.
  • In Record Manager, the MeSH index drop-down menu includes the Library of Congress authority files for Corporate/Conference Names, Personal Names, and Titles. They are included as points of access without having to leave the MeSH search. MeSH indexes do not cross-reference LC records.
