In the very near future, we will be eliminating the option to download lists of titles in HeinOnline as a CSV file type. Instead, we will exclusively use KBART as the delivery method for this information. We have recently enhanced our KBART files to conform with the latest (Phase II) Recommended Practice Report; also, these KBART files contain the same title metadata that was available using the CSV file type. Knowledge Bases and Related Tools (KBART)  was created by The National Information Standards Organization (NISO)…

Search for a Title with a Question Mark

How do you search for a title that contains a question mark? Question marks are used as wildcards in HeinOnline searches.
