New Icons Improve HeinOnline’s Usability

July 5, 2018

By Alan Kilpatrick

HeinOnline is a popular online law library that provides over 2000 legal journals from Canada, the United States, and the Commonwealth as well as an impressive historical collection of case law and legislation from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

Recently, HeinOnline launched a new series of “information icons.”  These icons make it easier to stay up-to-date with the details about a particular legal journal.  Located to the left of each title, the information icons will help you learn more about a journal and the last time it was updated:

Hovering over an icon with your cursor reveals that icon’s purpose.  It’s often challenging to identify information about specific journal titles in large electronic databases.  This is why HeinOnline’s new information icons are so helpful and appreciated.

Members can access HeinOnline through the Members’ Section of the Law Society website.
