As of July 12, 2018, the NCBI Bookshelf supports search by MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) fields, including MeSH Major Topics [MAJR], MeSH Subheadings [SH], & MeSH Terms [MH]. Bookshelf populates these MeSH fields in its index from the MeSH assignments in the NLM Catalog.
As of this date, Bookshelf also supports search by author supplied keywords. These keywords are indexed along with autogenerated concept phrases in the Bookshelf Concept Phrases & Keywords field [KYWD].
For more information about using these & other Bookshelf search fields, see the Search Field Descriptions & Tags section of Bookshelf Help.
