PRESS RELEASEFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HeinOnline Is Now a KBART-Endorsed Vendor
October 7, 2022
HeinOnline, a product of William S. Hein & Co., Inc., has recently received a KBART endorsement. KBART, which stands for “Knowledge Bases and Related Tools,” is a National Information Standards Organization (NISO) Recommended Practice for the communication of electronic resource title list and coverage data from content providers to knowledge base suppliers. KBART standards help to ensure the integrity and functionality of knowledge bases by offering a consistent method for relaying information. Approximately 40% of full-text usage on publisher sites is driven by library databases, so the ability for OpenURL link resolvers to utilize knowledge base title data provided by publishers is essential to make content more discoverable and accessible.
Each HeinOnline database includes unique URLs to download titles listings in KBART format (.csv & .txt). The files are updated monthly and provide a uniform structure that can be relied upon to support library link resolvers and electronic resource management systems for content discovery in library settings. A comprehensive list of downloadable title listings for HeinOnline databases is publicly accessible here: help.heinonline.org/kb/heinonline-database-title-listings/.
HeinOnline is a premier online research database that provides comprehensive coverage from inception of nearly 3,000 multidisciplinary periodicals, essential government documents, international treaties and trials, case law, and much more. Composed of image-based PDFs and available at an affordable price, the wealth of material allows academic institutions, government agencies, law firms, court systems, corporations, and other organizations access to authoritative, true-to-print digital material without the hassle or cost of using multiple research databases. Furthermore, subscriptions to HeinOnline consistently increase in value without added cost as HeinOnline adds daily, weekly, and monthly content while continuously incorporating new artificial intelligence tools for easier research.
