MeSH Survey

We would like to invite librarians interested in MeSH (medical subject headings) authority control to complete an online survey.

The Health Sciences OCLC Users Group is conducting the survey. It is coordinated by Dan Kniesner (kniesner at ohsu.edu) at Oregon Health & Science University Library and Judith Dzierba (Judith_L_Dzierba at rush.edu) at the Library of Rush University.

The survey is anonymous and will assess the current diversity of MeSH authority practices in health sciences libraries, as well as the impact NLM's application of MeSH and the lack of MeSH authorities in OCLC has had on those practices.

Survey deadline is April 20, 2002. Results will be posted on the HSOCLCUG website.
