New Online: 2014 Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) Now Available
From the National Library of Medicine Tech Bulletin:
The Introduction to MeSH 2014 is now available, including information on its use and structure, as well as recent updates and availability of data.
The default year in the MeSH Browser remains 2013 MeSH for now, but the alternate link provides access to 2014 MeSH. The MeSH Section will continue to provide access via the MeSH Browser for two years of the vocabulary: the current year and an alternate year. Sometime in November or December, the default year will change to 2014 MeSH and the alternate link will provide access to the 2013 MeSH.
