Hein Online is one of the most powerful and helpful databases for law students and faculty. The quality and quantity of resources and documents available is already mind-boggling and continues to grow each month. Here is a list of the resources that you can access on Hein Online through your NetID.
An easy way to cut down on the sheer amount of documents is to search for your source first in the library catalog. For example, if you are looking for the Washington Law Review, you can enter the title in the catalog's search box, and then click on the record that says "Electronic Resource". Once you are on the record's page, click on the "FindIt" button on the right-hand side. This will tell you where your title is available electronically. Choose Hein Online from the list, and you are taken straight to the Washington Law Review's page on Hein Online, which has every issue in PDF format from 1925 to 2013. For a more visual approach to learning how to do this search, watch the video below (Click on the full screen icon in the lower right to make it bigger).
This simple trick works for all law reviews and a large majority of all the resources found in Hein Online. It makes the search process much easier and allows you to quickly locate all your sources without having to navigate through various search interfaces. If you have any problems or questions with your search, always feel free to ask a librarian. We are happy to help!
