As HeinOnline continues to grow, we have expanded the size and depth of our server platforms, and enhanced security and failover mechanisms behind the scenes. These enhancements enable our users to have a seamless and positive legal research experience when we perform routine server maintenance or encounter unexpected downtime.

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) in 2010 to improve the supply of data to link resolvers and knowledge bases,

Recently, some users have reported problems saving the PDFs that they have downloaded from HeinOnline. The problem in particular is that their option to save the PDF has actually disappeared! We believe that the cause of the disappearing ‘Save’ button is one of Windows Vista’s security measures.
