Many law students and faculty depend on the William S. Hein Company for easy access to pdfs of journal articles, U.S. Code, U.N. materials and more. Access is now even easier with the new HeinOnline app.
HeinOnline (HOL), the largest image-based legal research database, has created an app that allows you to search for and download pdfs to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. Available to Penn Law students and faculty through Biddle’s subscription to HOL, access is through IP authentication, available when in the law school or through Biddle’s log-in proxy when off-site using your LawKey login.
After logging in you will be able to search by HOL library, by citation, by title, or by browsing in the publications. You will also be able to download the pdfs to your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. More detailed information is available on HeinOnlineApp_UsersGuide.pdf
. You can download the free app in the iTunes App store by searching for “HeinOnline 2012.”
