PubMed has a medical thesaurus called MeSH - Medical Subject Headings. You can use this thesaurus to find medical terms, definitions, and drug names (but not articles). MeSH is a great resource if you are unsure of the best keywords to use in a search (in any database or search engine).
Use these tips when you search in CCC Library databases. Your search results will be more focused and relevant to your topic!

Boss level pro tip: If you identified official MeSH terms, you can search with them here. Change the "Add terms to the query box" dropdown menu to "MeSH Major Topic" or "MeSH Terms" and fire away.
We all use it - now let's learn to use it better!
