If you’ve spent a fair amount of time in the Law Journal Library, you may be familiar with HeinOnline’s Topics.

When using an information search engine, one crucial factor is the ability to see your previous search activity. HeinOnline has always given its users the option to see a listing of their search history, but a new feature now allows MyHein users better management and organization of all of their previous search queries.
