LibGuides: A Librarian’s Best Friend


We know how valuable LibGuides are for librarians and researchers alike, which is why we have created them for almost all of our databases. Copying is usually frowned upon—but not in this case. So go ahead and copy them. We encourage it! And keep reading to learn more about how you can take full advantage of HeinOnline’s wealth of LibGuides.

Copy Our LibGuides in Two Easy Steps

Step 1

Include HeinOnline as a resource within your library. Copy and paste the descriptions from our A-Z database page to display in your library’s list of content. That way, you can have descriptions for each database within your HeinOnline subscription!

Step 2

Copy our LibGuides to display within your own library guides. To do this, log into LibApps and visit your dashboard, then create a new guide. Under Choose Layout or Reuse, select “Copy content / layout from an existing guide.” Then, select “Local Guides” and choose the LibGuide you wish to copy. Then, to create copies of the guide’s assets, which you can edit without affecting the original, select the Copy Assets checkbox and fill out the remaining information.
