Tip of the Week: How to Link Directly to a Title Listing in HeinOnline

Tip of the Week, Tips and Tricks

Have you found yourself wanting to link directly to a specific title that is available in HeinOnline rather than linking to a HeinOnline library?  This could be the case if you are sending an email, doing a blog post, communicating to a group of colleagues via a newsletter or other source, and you want them to know that you recently acquired a specific title electronically via a HeinOnline subscription.  Or perhaps you are linking to a specific title within help documentation or research guides that you are creating.  No matter the case, the tip explains how to identify the title link. 

There are two ways to identify the link to a specific title.  The first is by searching for the title using the Catalog Search option.  The second is by browsing to the title within the HeinOnline library it resides in.

Searching for the title using the Catalog Search option is the fastest method to identify the link.  Furthermore, if you are unsure what collection the title resides in, the Catalog Search option is the best starting point.

Start from the HeinOnline Welcome Page at https://heinonline.org/HOL/Welcome.  Under the Catalog Search option select Publication Title from the drop down.  Enter the name of the title you wish to link to.  If you do not know the exact name of the title, enter a few key words from the title.  For example, we want to link to the Decisions of the Federal Labor Relations Authority in HeinOnline’s U.S. Federal Agency Library.  We could insert “Federal Labor Relations Authority” and click search.

The title we want to link to is returned as our first result.  From the results list, you can right click on the title and copy the link address, then paste it into the email or other location where you want the link to appear.  

Or, you can click on the title to display the volume listing.  From the volume listing, you can highlight and copy the URL in the browser address bar and paste it into the email or other location.  

Alternatively, you could also browse to the title if you know the HeinOnline library that the title is in.  For example, we want to link to the Congressional Directory from HeinOnline’s U.S. Congressional Documents library.  After we browse to the title, we can right click the title and copy the link address.

Or, we can right click on the title and open it in a new tab or window.  When the title opens in a new tab, it will display the volume listing.  From here you can copy the URL from the address bar.
