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.
1. Email a PDF link from a results page
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.
2. Email a PDF link from within a document
