Medical Subject Headings [MeSH] work well in pulling together synonyms for a concept or term. MeSH terms are invaluable options when one first searches for words and phrases and finds hundreds if not thousands of results.
Library Guides (LibGuides) have been created by UT Librarians as aids to find information and use online resources in specific disciplines. Many guides also provide help for all in locating books and articles, photocopying, course reserves, and more.
One may search through the (1)Search Option OR (2)Guides by Type
(1) Search Option. For example, search with one word (as Nursing) or more than one word (as Nursing AND “practice guidelines”) The quotes force the words practice and guidelines to be searched as a phrase.

Users can now use filters to narrow search results in PubMed Labs by article type, text availability, publication date, species, language, sex, subject, journal category, and age. The most popular filters are included on the sidebar by default.
To apply a filter, run a search and click on the checkbox next to the filter name. A checkmark will appear next to the selected filters (see Figure 1).
To add items to the Filters menu:
Choose a category on the left (Article Type, Species, etc.).
Within each category select the filters that you would like to add to your Filters menu.
Click Apply to add the selected filters to the sidebar menu and close the pop-up.
To apply a filter to your search, click on the filter name in the menu (see Figure 1).
More information about filters:
When filters are selected, a “Filters applied” message will display above your results and on the Advanced Search page.
Click an applied filter to turn it off.
To turn off all applied filters, click the “Clear all” link or the “Reset all filters” button.
Citations may be excluded for some filter selections because they have not yet completed the MEDLINE indexing process. For example, the “Humans” filter will return results that have been indexed with the term Humans.
The new PubMed is under active development and the appearance and layout will change as features are added, tested, and refined. We welcome your feedback. Please submit your comments, questions, or concerns using the “Feedback” button available on each page of PubMed Labs.
