Two of the most frequently asked questions our HeinOnline Support Team receives are:

1. How do I know if I have access to a publication in HeinOnline?

Locate/Access a Title

The easiest way to find out if a title is available in HeinOnline and the collection in which it resides is by using the Catalog Search tab from the Welcome Page:

Enter the title and change the drop-down menu to Publication Title, and then click search. Titles that meet your search criteria will appear in the results, which will also list the collection(s) in which each title appears:

In the example above, you can see that the Alabama Code of 1928 appears in the Session Laws Library and State Statutes: A Historical Archive. The catalog search tool searches all of HeinOnline, so results may includes titles that reside in collections to which your institution does not subscribe. Click the title to access the material.
