Catalog Subjects Feature in HeinOnline

The Subjects tool can be found within the Advanced Search option within any database. This subject coding, driven from Cassidy Cataloging‘s MARC Records, is at the title level and can be used to browse subjects and look for documents on a specific subject. Locate the Advanced Search link at the top of the HeinOnline welcome page or within any database and find the Catalog Subjects feature.
