HeinOnline’s New (and Improved) Search Box

HeinOnline has updated their search box so that it is now more streamlined and easier to use. Regular users of HeinOnline will know that the original search required you to select the appropriate tab based on the search parameters you wanted to set (i.e. Full Text, Citation, Catalog, or Caselaw). If you failed to select the correct tab, wacky results would ensue (like searching a citation in Catalog).

While this was a minor inconvenience, it was nevertheless an inconvenience. HeinOnline has removed it, relplacing it with the One-Box Search. The new search box allows you to type in your search terms and offers the fields for you to complete your search. The generated options include “Just search for” (the new “Full Text”), Author, Title, Citation, and Catalog. This change is also made in the advanced search field which is now more streamlined.
