About the HeinOnline Video Series
Several months ago, Quimbee approached the Hein Company with the idea to create a course for attorneys and students on the use of HeinOnline. After some initial collaboration, Quimbee took the information provided by HeinOnline’s support team and help page and ran with it, creating this incredible series of training videos. They have generously granted permission to feature this series on HeinOnline’s YouTube channel. In the coming weeks, the videos will also be added to the HeinOnline help page!
The series begins with the basics, such as logging into HeinOnline and creating a MyHein Account. Searching and navigating are also covered in detail, along with tutorials on HeinOnline’s various tools and features. The U.S. Congressional Documents database is also covered in detail. Examples and quirky anecdotes are provided to further the viewer’s understanding of the inner workings of HeinOnline. In total, the course includes 25 professional videos which will benefit both novice and experienced HeinOnline users.
Additional video topics include:
- Exploring the welcome page
- Searching for a citation
- Searching the HeinOnline catalog
- Case law, including HeinOnline’s partnership with Fastcase
- Downloading/printing content
- Author Profile Pages
- Searching across bills and resolutions
- Searching for Congress members by name

- Much more!
