Happy holidays and end of the semester. W.S. Hein sent us all a gift this year by improving HeinOnline’s searching functions. Previously, we could search either one or all of their databases. Now, we can pre-filter our searches to as many or as few databases as needed!
To do so, first select the “All Databases” drop-down that now appears on the right of the search bar. This brings up a list of databases where you can check the ones you want to search.
Click “Submit,” type your search in the search bar, and voila! You still can refine with post-search filters too.
For more information and a video, take a look at Hein’s blog post on this new feature at: https://home.heinonline.org/blog/2020/11/its-here-the-heinonline-search-feature-youve-been-waiting-for/
