Update on Federated Searching and HeinOnline

Lately we have received a number of inquiries concerning the use of Federated Search Engines with HeinOnline. We have been working with a few federated search vendors to ensure that their products give our subscribers the best results possible from HeinOnline. Here is the latest on the Federated Search vendors we have been working with.

WEBFEAT

We have approved the search connectors for the following libraries:

  • Law Journal Library

    • International & Non-U.S. Law Journals
    • Most-Cited Law Journals
  • Federal Register Library
  • Treaties and Agreements Library

SERIALS SOLUTIONS – Central Search

We have approved the search connectors for the following libraries:
  • Law Journal Library
    • American Bar Association Journals
    • Core U.S./Most-Cited Law Journals
    • Criminal Justice Journals
    • International & Non-U.S. Law Journals
    • Most-Cited Law Journals

MetaLib – MetaSearch (Exlibris)

We are very close to approving the connectors for the Law Journal Library and the Europeon Center for Minority Issues Library.


We have also recently been in contact with Innovative Interfaces concerning their Research Pro product but have nothing of substance to report at this time.

In order to make sure our customers receive accurate results from HeinOnline, we will not knowingly authenticate access to HeinOnline through a Federated Search Vendor we have not approved. If your library has purchased, or plans to purchase, a federated search engine product, we encourage you to contact the provider and ask them to contact Dan Rosati at d_rosati@wshein.com so that we may work with them to make HeinOnline compatible with their product. Please do not rely on the federated search engine provider to speak on our behalf.
