HeinOnline Search Tip: Finding a Publication by Title

To quickly discover whether a particular law report, book or journal is included on HeinOnline, use the Catalogue tab.

To quickly discover whether a particular law report, book or journal is included on HeinOnline, use the Catalog tab.

Instead of browsing the list of available collections on the HeinOnline home page and clicking into a one, such as the Law Journal Library, to try to find a particular publication, use the Catalog tab found above the search bar on the home page.

As an example, here’s a search for the Windsor Yearbook of Access to Justice.

The results pages gives you a direct link to the journal – making this method much faster than first selecting the Law Journal Library and then navigating to the journal.

The Catalog tab works well for finding law reports by title too.

As an example, let’s look for the Ontario Practice Reports. This older reporter (1850-1901) is on HeinOnline, but difficult to find since there is no collection for Canadian law reports and it’s not included in the English Reports collection.

A Catalog tab search returns the Ontario Practice Reports as the first result, and to the right lists the collection where it can be found – Provincial Statutes of Canada – Ontario!
