How Does ISSN Linking to Your Library Catalog Work?

Enhancements, Tips and Tricks

ISSN Linking to your library catalog is a complimentary service available with your HeinOnline subscription.

ISSN linking allows you to enable your users to search your local library catalog when the full text of what you are looking for is not currently available in HeinOnline.  

For content that we can’t provide full text, based on agreements with publishers, HeinOnline indexes the content to make it more discoverable, allowing us to at least inform your users that it exists.  By enabling ISSN Linking through your branding, users would be able to search your local library catalog to determine if the content may be available elsewhere in your library.

The “Search your library catalog” link will search your catalog by ISSN and direct users to your local library catalog results.

The link to your local library catalog can also be accessed from search results.  When a user does a search and sees a result for which we cannot provide the full text, the result will appear in a shaded red box and display the “Search your library catalog” link.
