How to Download Catalog Search Results

The easiest way to find out if a title exists in HeinOnline is to run a catalog search. A catalog search will search across the entire HeinOnline catalog, including MARC21 records. If you’re not familiar with catalog searching, check out this short tutorial.

For example, search the HeinOnline catalog for CRS Reports that mention artificial intelligence. To run this search, simply enter artificial intelligence CRS into the one-box search and select the Catalog option.
