One-box searching has come to HeinOnline and it’s a very nice improvement. Now you can search all Hein content from a single box with drop-down options allowing you to specify your search intent. Previously, your search was limited to a specific tab (full text, citation, catalog, or case law).
According to the HeinOnline blog, this interface update retains all searching functionality. No previous searching capabilities have been removed. Here are the drop down options:
- Just search for: Functions the same as the former “Full Text” tab, searching the full text of documents for your keyword(s). Users can also use this option to enter custom HeinOnline syntax—i.e. author: (Fitzgerald)—if desired.
- Citation: Functions as a combination of the former “Citation” and “Case Law” tabs, allowing you to search for a document or case citation.
- Catalog: Functions the same as the former “Catalog” tab, searching across the entire HeinOnline catalog record at the publication or title level.
- *Author: Allows users to search for a section author name.
- Scholarly visibility tip: Run an author name search and compare it against their Hein author profile to make sure nothing is missing.
- *Title: Allows users to search section titles (article titles within a journal issue, chapter titles in a book, etc.) across HeinOnline content.
The Advanced Search options have all be combined on a single page with three advanced search boxes—(1) HeinOnline’s standard Advanced Search; (2) Advanced Catalog Search; and (3) Fastcase Case Citation Lookup.
