Enhancements, U.S. Congressional Documents
HeinOnline Blogger

We would like to extend a note of gratitude to Phil Berwick from Washington University St. Louis for his input regarding the new U.S. Congressional Documents page locator feature. Based upon his recommendation, we are adding an additional tool that will allow you to quickly locate a page from the Congressional Record Daily within the Bound Volume. This tool will be available under Collection Resources to all subscribers of the U.S. Congressional Documents collection.

You will be able to locate the corresponding page in the Congressional Record Bound Volume by selecting a date or using a citation from the Congressional Record Daily. With the initial release, this tool will provide coverage between 1994-2003 and we are committed to take it as far back as necessary…

Key Word Search added to English Reports Collection

Enhancements

After receiving customer feedback, we’ve expanded the search options available on the English Reports collection home page.

This search function will query the Nominative Citation, Case Name (title) and the text. Search results will be sorted by relevancy to the search term(s) entered. For example, if I am unsure of the exact case name about the Saunders case, I can enter Saunders into the box…

Enhancements
Shane Marmion

Based on customer feedback, we are making an enhancement to the browsing of titles in HeinOnline collections which will be available with our October content release.

We added the ability to browse volumes within a title without taking you to an entirely new page. On a collection’s list of titles you will now see a “+” to the immediate left of each title which indicates that when it is clicked, the volumes relating to that title will open up underneath that title in reverse volume order so you see the most current volume first.

Hopefully, this change will make your legal research experience in HeinOnline more efficient…

Shane Marmion

At the American Association of Law Libraries meeting in New Orleans this past July we demonstrated a new HeinOnline feature called “Title Lookup.” This new feature will be available to all HeinOnline users later this week!

Title Lookup will give you the ability to easily locate titles in HeinOnline. Currently with over 3,000 titles in over 25 libraries, it can be difficult to determine which titles reside in which collections.

You can use Title Lookup to locate a title anywhere in HeinOnline or you can use it to locate a title in a specific HeinOnline library. Title Lookup is available on the HeinOnline “Welcome” page and in each HeinOnline library…
