How do I print a screen in HeinOnline that is not an image-based page?

Enhancements
admin

After receiving customer feedback, we’ve expanded the search options available on the English Reports collection home page. Where you previously could search by case name, citation or nomitative citation, we’ve now added the ability to search using key word(s). This option functions just like the simple search found on the search menu in other libraries in HeinOnline. If more than one word is entered, all terms are logically paired with the AND operator. 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…

New Enhancement to browsing of titles in HeinOnline

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…
