MeSHmas is Here!

It's that merry time of year when good little medical librarians everywhere get shiny new MeSH terms to enjoy.

Among my favorite of the things we can now search for directly are the more specific forms of Prejudice: Ageism, Homophobia, Racism and Sexism.

Also exciting additions: the specific Meals of Breakfast, Lunch, and Snacks.

Not Dinner or Supper, which still map back to Meals, possibly reflecting insoluble regional disagreement over which of these means "the last major meal of the day." Not Dessert either, which is a sad omission for those of us who always try to save room for pie.

You could probably get at those articles before by using Prejudice or Meals plus the relevant keyword, but it could be useful to be able to search directly for the attitude or meal in which you're particularly interested.

All those articles on Ageist Breakfasts will no longer elude me.
