MyHein has surpassed its first milestone, with over 1000 active users! That’s not all, have you seen the new export options?

In just 2 months, since the debut of HeinOnline’s newest research tool, 1000+ users have signed up for a MyHein account! Are you taking advantage of the new MyHein tool? If not, we invite you to join the 1000+ other users who are bookmarking articles, saving search queries and managing their research in HeinOnline. Click here to learn more about creating an account. If you are already using MyHein, let us take a moment to introduce you to our latest enhancement.

We have added four export options to the MyHein bookmarks menu. These export options will allow you to export one or multiple bookmarks to your RefWorks or EndNote accounts, email them to yourself or a colleague, or export them to a CSV file. We would like to note here, that exporting to RefWorks, EndNote, or to a CSV file is currently limited to law journal articles only. Therefore, when using these three options, if you check a bookmark that is not from a law journal the bookmark will not be included in the export. Email options however, are functional for all bookmarks despite which HeinOnline library it is bookmarked from. Let’s take a further look at each of these options.


Export to an Email:

Check the box for one or multiple bookmarks that you would like to email. Choose the "Email" option from the drop down menu at the top of the screen and click submit. You will be prompted to fill in your email address and add a note to the email if you wish.

Export to a CSV File (law journals only):
Check the box for one or multiple bookmarks that you would like to export to the CSV file. Choose the "Export to CSV" option from the drop down menu at the top of the screen and click submit. You will then be prompted to open or save the CSV file. Upon opening the file, each bookmark entry will display the Title, Author, Journal, Volume, Page, Date and the URL to access the article in HeinOnline.


Export to RefWorks or EndNote (Law Journals only):
Check the box for one or multiple bookmarks that you would like to export to Refworks or EndNote. Choose the appropriate export option from the drop down menu and click submit. Follow the prompts on the screen to continue exporting this data to your reference management tool.

So, now you ask, "can I export my search results?" Unfortunately, we are not currently offering the ability to do that. However, if you simply want to email the link to a search query to a colleague or friend, you can do this fairly easily. Open your saved search queries, right click on the link to the search query you wish to send to someone, and then click on "copy link location" (for Firefox users) or "copy shortcut" (for Internet Explorer) users. Now, you can paste the link into the body of an email.

Lastly, we are always looking for ways to add more value to this research tool. In doing so, we would like to ask our active users for feedback regarding some additional features that you'd like to see added. We have developed a brief 5 question survey, accessible by clicking here, that we invite you to take to help us further advance this tool.
