Update to Subcollection Lists on Welcome Page

Customer Suggestion, Enhancements, Miscellaneous, What's New
Shannon Furtak

Thanks to additional customer suggestions, we have improved upon the subcollection feature now available on the HeinOnline welcome page. From the list of Subscribed Libraries, main collections can be expanded to show any resident subcollections, thus making it faster and easier to navigate to a specific section of the library.

Any collection that has available subcollections will be noted with a plus sign:

If you click on the collection, it will expand to reveal available quick-linked subcollections:

From here, click on the subcollection that best suits your needs. The “All Titles” option will take you into the full collection:

Please note that clicking on any HeinOnline library that does not have subcollections will continue to take you directly into the library…

Enhancement: Sub-Collection Quick Links added to List of Subscribed Libraries

Customer Suggestion, Enhancements, What's New
Shannon Furtak

You may have noticed that the HeinOnline Welcome Page looks slightly different. Thanks to a suggestion from Jim Heller of the College of William and Mary, we have added quick links to major subcollections under the main collection link for certain HeinOnline libraries. For example, under U.S. Congressional Documents we have now quick-linked to Debates of Congress, Congressional Budget Office, Rules & Precedents, and so on:

Once you click on a subcollection link, you’ll be brought directly into that subcollection within the main library. The subcollection you selected will be highlighted in yellow:

As always, we welcome feedback and suggestions from our valued customers. Thank you for working with us to continually improve and enhance all aspects of HeinOnline…

Looking for help with search syntax? Use the new "Need Help?" link.

Customer Suggestion, Searching, Tips and Tricks
admin

We have received feedback from our customers that it would be helpful to have our search syntax readily available from the advanced search screen in HeinOnline.  This would enable researchers to quickly determine how to do a proximity or wildcard search or even use boosting.  As a result of your feedback, we have added a “Need Help?” link directly below the search box on the Advanced Search screen.  When you click the “Need Help?” link, it will open a small window that contains the volume or section level fields you can search across in that particular library, along with the common search syntax for proximity, wildcard/root expanders, and boosting.

Customer Suggestion, Miscellaneous
admin

Two years ago we distributed a collection development survey to find out what content you wanted to see added to HeinOnline and how you would prioritize them in terms of importance. We are pleased to announce that the six collections we asked you to prioritize two years ago have since been added to HeinOnline and are fully available, including the U.S. Code, Bar Journals and the entire back file of the CFR.

Now we would like to ask you for your feedback again. We have outlined nine collections for which we would like you to indicate the level of priority you would assign to each in regards to seeing it included in HeinOnline.  We also invite any additional feedback about adding new collections or adding new material to collections already available…
