One-Box Search

The HeinOnline search engine generates results based on the input of various types of information. You can enter a keyword (or several), a document or case citation, an author name, the name of a publication title, and more into the HeinOnline search bar to bring up results associated with that metadata in HeinOnline.

From anywhere in HeinOnline, enter any query into the one-box search. A series of options will appear in a drop-down, allowing you to specify your search intent.

PathFinder is a suite of browse and search tools for subject-specific research, powered by a multi-level subject taxonomy that has been organized from the ground up based on our initial list of 1,500 “topics.” Now called Subjects, these granular research concepts have been categorized into increasingly broad levels. 

This multidisciplinary taxonomy tool can be located within the Law Journal Library in the database Advanced Search options, within search results, within the image toolbar when viewing a document, and on Author Profile pages.
