Abstract
identifies indexing features of the National Library of Medicine's Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) that pose challenges to end users of MEDLINE. These problematic features include the use of Explodes, Tree structures, subheadings, Text Word versus subject heading searching, and central concept searching. As end user search software becomes more sophisticated, so much methods of instruction to orient the end user to theses systems
