New Enhancements

New Search Option in Law Journal, Bar Journals, and Kluwer Libraries

This month we added a new enhancement to the Law Journal Library, Bar Journal Library and Kluwer Law International Journal Library. Now, when conducting a field or advanced search in any of these libraries, you will have the option to view the full journal title when limiting your search to a specific title In the past, you were given the option to select the journal by the citation, which you will still be able to do. This, however, will allow for easier selection of journal titles if you do not know the proper citation of the journal you are looking for.

Searching to be Enhanced by Cassidy Cataloging Records - Coming Soon!
We will be using MARC21 record sets to enhance the discoverability of titles within HeinOnline. In the coming months, we will be adding the ability to search HeinOnline using key data from Cassidy Cataloging Records. Stay tuned for more information about this new enhancement.
