How to Mark Databases as Favorites Using Your MyHein Account

Thanks to a customer suggestion from Shay Elbaum of Stanford Law School, users can mark databases as favorites to push them to the top of their HeinOnline welcome page using their MyHein account! Check out the video tutorial below, and then continue scrolling for a written guide.

To use this feature, users must be logged into their MyHein account. From within the MyHein interface, select Favorite Databases from the options at the top.
