MyHein Is Even Better With Two New Features!

MyHein, What's New
Shannon Sabo

MyHein is HeinOnline’s personal research tool. Anyone with access to a HeinOnline subscription can create one or more MyHein accounts. MyHein accounts are not attached to a specific HeinOnline subscription; for example, a student can use an account she created in law school if she joins a law firm that subscribes to HeinOnline.

MyHein enables users to bookmark articles and other documents, create and save search queries, and set up eTOC alerts for any serial publication. To help researchers take advantage of all available MyHein features, this user’s guide has been created.

Research What's In the News with HeinOnline: Officer Involved Shootings

Current Events, Fastcase, Law Journal Library, MyHein, Searching

Darren Wilson and Michael Brown became household names in 2014 when Officer Wilson shot and killed Brown, who was unarmed, during an altercation that occurred in Ferguson, Missouri. The shooting sparked much controversy and debate about what constitutes justifiable use of force by police.

According to Mother Jones, no agency or database tracks the number of police shootings or killings of unarmed persons in a systematic, comprehensive way. This Washington Post article notes that the Justice Department allows the nation's law enforcement agencies to "self-report officer-involved shootings as part of the FBI's annual data on 'justifiable homicides' by law enforcement."

New Option Available for e-TOC Alerts!

Branding, Enhancements, Miscellaneous, MyHein, What's New
Shannon Sabo

If you're already taking advantage of or you plan to set up HeinOnline branding, we have a new enhancement available that will increase the functionality of the e-TOC alerts currently available to users of the MyHein feature in HeinOnline.

If you use a proxy and provide us the prefix and (if necessary) the suffix to your proxy URL on your branding request, we can create proxy links in e-TOC alert e-mails. This will enable users accessing remotely via a proxy server to simply click on the link to access the material, instead of being redirected to the HeinOnline login page. The e-mail received containing the e-TOC alerts would now look like this:

The direct link will work from any IP authenticated system…
