What information is included in an IFLP index record?
Below is an example of what an index record would look like in IFLP in HeinOnline. Please note that not every index record looks the same because index records may contain different information. Let’s explore the below example in more detail.
- The first thing you see is the name of the article.
- Following that, is a link that says “View Article in HeinOnline”. If the article is available in HeinOnline, we will display this link and allow you to link right to the article.
- Save/Bookmark link – this link allows you to bookmark this index record to your MyHein account.
- Author – you can click on an author’s name to generate a complete list of all index records with that author
- Source – this is the source of the article including the journal title, volume and issue information, page numbers and year of publication
- Subject Heading – these are the subject headings applied to this article. You can click on a subject heading to generate a list of other index records with that same subject heading.
- ISSN – displays the ISSN for the journal. If you have ISSN linking set up through HeinOnline Branding, you can include a link here that says “Search your library catalog”. This link will allow users to link to your local library catalog through an ISSN search to determine if the journal is available in your library.
- In the upper right corner you see an icon for YaleLinks. This is an example of OpenURL linking. OpenURL linking is similar to ISSN linking, but with OpenURL linking you link to your local library catalog using an article search allowing your users to determine where in your library they can find this specific article.
