How do I search by Author?


HeinOnline indexes author names as they appear in the original copy of a title/article. Some author names may contain middle initials, only the first initial of their first name, or both first and middle initials. An author could be displayed in the index in one or more of the following formats:

  • Last Name, First Name (ex: Cheffins, Brian)
  • Last Name, First Name, Middle Initial (ex: Franck, Susan D.)
  • Last Name, First Initial, Middle Initial (ex: Robertson, A. H.)
  • Last Name, First Initial (ex: Miller, S.)
  • Last Name, First Initial, Middle Name (ex: Miller, S. Elizabeth)

You can search for authors multiple ways.
