Medical Subject Headings

Update (June 15, 2010): Ovid will switch to version 3.0 of OvidSP on August 2, 2010. A new version of this video is available here.

Great tutorial! Very informative in how well worded and descriptive you were! You know they say that if one knows how to describe what they want really well, then life is just as good as how you describe it :)
Its great for people who feel like time is running against them and then land on your blog and feel like a whole burden was just lifted off of their shoulder.. I admire and respect people who take
time to make it easier for others.. Thanks a bunch! :)
