HeinOnline – “Last month we introduced HeinOnline’s concept of social indexing in the scholarly arena. We got a great response to this enhancement and received a great deal of feedback from our customers. The biggest question was, “Now that we can view the overall impact, can we sort our results by the number of times the articles are cited? We want to be able to see the most cited articles first!”
HeinOnline – “It’s no secret! As Due Process, WisBlawg and ZiefBrief have all reported, Google Scholar is indexing the Law Journals in HeinOnline to make the more than 1,100 titles searchable in the Google Scholar interface.”
HeinOnline – “Are you looking for a journal volume or a specific page from a recent issue of a journal, but are not sure if it is available in HeinOnline?”
HeinOnline is the “little engine that could” in the legal information community. A great resource.
Blog post – “Our development team has been working on a new feature called “MyHein” which will allow users to bookmark relevant links as well as track their research time.”
HeinOnline Blog – “Title Lookup will give you the ability to easily locate titles in HeinOnline. Currently with over 3,000 titles in over 25 libraries, it can be difficult to determine which titles reside in which collections.”
Such a simple concept that will make using this incredible resource so much easier!
