How do I search a specific volume of a title?

In HeinOnline, you may come across titles that have multiple volumes. Some sets are more extensive than others, but in any case, you may want to search a specific volume of a title rather than search across the entire set.

Using our Legal Classics database, for example, say we want to find references to fraud in the second volume of “Treatise upon Some of the General Principles of the Law, Whether of a Legal, or of an Equitable Nature, including their Relations and Application to Actions and Defenses in General” written by William Wait. To search by volume number, you must construct your search using the Advanced Search option.

To search by volume number, enter Legal Classics and find the title you are looking for using the alphabetic listing.
