Finding Sources in HeinOnline

You may have already used HeinOnline (authentication needed for remote access) to pull up law review articles, older versions of the CFR, or maybe older state statutes. If you haven’t used HeinOnline yet, it’s worth checking out.

In terms of finding a source you need, HeinOnline is pretty straightforward. When you go to the main page, you’ll see the main subcategories of information (called libraries) laid out in a browsable list. If you know that HeinOnline includes the Congressional Record, then you can find that source by browsing to the U.S. Congressional Documents library.

Another way to find sources in HeinOnline is to use the Catalog tab that’s at the top. There you can type in the name of any source you’re looking for. For example, using the Catalog tab, you could find out that HeinOnline includes an earlier edition of the Ohio Lawyers’ Practice Handbook with Forms.
