  • Examples: search for 1) valium, and 2) diazepam. Why do you get different results?
  • Just a reminder to use your other drug information tools. Here’s one of mine – I like the Merck Index because I can get a picture of when the drug was first prepared, when synthesized, and some of the original uses. This helps me put the drug into context regarding time so that I can do a more effective search.
  • What are the major benefits you will promote? What barriers do you foresee?
  • To get an up-to-date number of drugs, type ‘all [sb]’ in the search box – on April 9, 2008, there were 17894173 citations OLDMEDLINE not yet mapped to current MeSH
  • To get souvenir copy, go to MeSH Home -> What’s new in MeSH
  • Alan Carr will be a trainer for the community assessment course as of the end of April.
  • Please work together in groups but give us individual responses.
