How to Set Up Alerts

When searching in HeinOnline, the search bar remains stationary throughout the database. The Catalog search tab can be used to locate items at the publication level and searches across the entire HeinOnline catalog. For example, enter lexicon OR dictionary OR Dictionaries OR dictionarie OR words OR terms OR termes in the search bar and click the search button.

NOTE: Users can also search using the Advanced Catalog Search, found under the Catalog tab.

Search results highlight the search terms in yellow. Refine your search using the facets on the left side of the page. To save this search query to your MyHein account, click the disk icon above the results.

This prompts the user to select a tag or enter a new tag prior to saving. Click Enter Into Research to save the search query.

The user receives a notification that the search query has been saved with a link that directs them to their MyHein account.

Users can see saved search queries in their MyHein account along with a timestamp of when the queries were saved. Users can delete tags, sort them by title or date, and email them to themselves or someone else. When new titles are added to HeinOnline with these terms, the user will be notified via email.

We encourage all customers to continue to give us valuable feedback. Click the Feedback button located in the Help option on the upper right side of all screens in HeinOnline.
