LibGuides are an easy way to compile knowledge, share useful information, and organize and showcase subject-specific resources. The creation of LibGuides is an ongoing project in HeinOnline, with the goal of adding four guides a month until a LibGuide exists for each database. Each guide will feature database-specific content, search tips, tools, features, training materials, and more.

With HeinOnline LibGuides, users of all backgrounds have easy access to database knowledge and interface functionality. Libraries can even feature HeinOnline’s LibGuides on their websites as a student resource.

The LibGuides Home Page

Right from HeinOnline’s LibGuides homepage, users will see a list of available LibGuides as well as other options for learning more about HeinOnline. View all available LibGuides at once or browse by subject, type, or LibGuide owner.

To view a list of all databases in HeinOnline, visit the A-Z Database List. Filter the list to peruse by database type, subject, or vendor/provider. Learn about our newest and most popular databases from this page, as well.

On the home page, users will also find a link to the HeinOnline Knowledge Base. The home page also showcases our live Twitter feed as well as the most recent posts from the HeinOnline Blog.

Using a LibGuide

Enter a subscribed database in HeinOnline to access its LibGuide. Let’s use HeinOnline’s U.S. Congressional Serial Set as an example. From the Serial Set homepage, users will see the LibGuide link nestled right in the breadcrumb trail above the Browse tabs.

Clicking on the link will bring the users directly to HeinOnline’s U.S. Congressional Serial Set LibGuide. Curious about who created a LibGuide? A picture of the HeinOnline Specialist in question is featured on the left-hand side of the page.

The home page of each LibGuide will provide an overview of what is included in the database. To learn more about how to use the database, click on any section of the left-hand menu.
