How to Locate an Article

There are four different ways to easily locate an article from the HeinOnline welcome page without having to enter the Law Journal Library.  Let’s try to locate a highly cited article in HeinOnline titled Whose Eyes are you Going to Believe.

Using a Citation

If you have a citation handy, this will be the fastest way to pull up an article. To begin, simply enter the citation into the one-box search and select the citation option from the drop-down menu. This will bring you directly to the article.

Using a Title

If you don’t have a citation handy, but you know the title of the article, you can also enter that into the search bar, but this time select the title option from the drop-down menu.

Using an Author’s Name

Let’s say you don’t know the full title of the article, but you happen to know an author’s name. Using that same one-box search, enter the author’s name and select the author option from the drop-down menu.

Lastly, you can use the Advanced Search option located underneath the one-box search to locate an article.
