  3. How to Email a PDF Link to a Document in HeinOnline

Users can email a PDF link of a document in HeinOnline to their friend or colleague two different ways.

From any results page, look for the email icon located to the right of a document.

Once the email icon is selected, a pop up box will appear giving users several options for emailing a PDF link.

First, choose a citation format to include in the email. Next, enter the email address or addresses you wish to send the document to, up to 10 total separating each with a semicolon. An optional box is also available to include the name of the sender.  Once users have filled out the available boxes and selected the Email button, they will receive a confirmation page.

The email that is sent to the user includes:

  • The title and author(s)
  • The citation format that was selected
  • A permalink to the document
  • A proxy permalink if an account has branding set up
  • A download link

NOTE: The PDF download link will expire within 7 days.


Users will also notice the email icon located in the image toolbar above any document in HeinOnline. Select the email icon and follow the same steps as above to email a PDF link to a friend or colleague.
