MedTerm Search Assist – A database to share biomedical terminology and strategies for comprehensive searches

MedTerm Search Assist

By librarians for librarians — A database to share
biomedical terminology and strategies for comprehensive searches

From a Medlib-L listerv entry dated 15 July 2011

The MedTerm Search Assist http://www.hsls.pitt.edu/terms/> database was developed at the Health Sciences Library System, University of Pittsburgh, for librarians to share terminology, MEDLINE search strategies, and search tips with one another for comprehensive searches such as systematic reviews. Any librarian can add a new term into the database or suggest additions for existing records.

Before being displayed in the database, all submitted terms are reviewed for obvious errors such as misspellings, but are not reviewed for thoroughness, quality, or accuracy.

To contribute or browse the database please visit: www.hsls.pitt.edu/terms http://www.hsls.pitt.edu/terms>.

For comments or questions regarding the database please fill out the available form: http://www.hsls.pitt.edu/terms/contact
<http://www.hsls.pitt.edu/terms/contact> or e-mail the project managers  directly: Ahlam Saleh, saleha@pitt.edu or Melissa Ratajeski, mar@pitt.edu

    • This template (Andreas04) is free through WordPress.
      It is only availabable, I believe, to those who set up WordPress accounts (at wordpress.com).
      Wordpress.com has quite a few templates. Many are free, some require a payment.
      I use the Andreas04 blog.
      Once I set up a WordPress account, I clicked on “Appearance”, then “Themes”.

      Hope this helps!
