Abstract:MEDLINE is an essential bibliographic database for health professionals and is an indispensable part of clinical care. Despite that one of MEDLINE’s main features is its use of MeSH, in practice, MEDLINE is offered on a number of platforms and each of these platforms takes very different approaches to using MeSH and in indexing other database fields, leading to variations in search results among the platforms. This project is based on a longitudinal study of these platforms with the goal of outlining how they differ and to provide guidelines for their use by instructors, students, and practitioners.
