Journal Alerts with HeinOnline

Many of our library card holders read recent full-text articles through the library's subscription to HeinOnline. To make reading articles online even easier, HeinOnline offers a title alert service, which will email you every time the titles you select have been updated. Watch HeinOnline's short video tutorial (or read their how-to) and then set up your own alerts!

The email you receive includes a direct link to the latest issue, plus a complete table of contents with direct links to individual articles.

To set up an email alert, you must create and log in to a separate MyHein account after logging in to the database with your library card number.

Follow these steps to set up a MyHein account and create your first journal alert:

  1. Log in to HeinOnline with your library card (see our tutorial).
  2. Library computer users are logged in automatically – no card required.
  3. Select the "Law Journal Library" link on the left side of the start page.
  4. Choose the "MyHein" tab at the top.
  5. Select the "Create an Account" link on the left side, under the login boxes.
  6. Make up a username, password, and fill in the rest of your information, including the email address to which you would like alerts sent.
  7. Now that you've created a MyHein account, follow these steps from HeinOnline to create and manage your title alerts.
  8. To manage your MyHein account in the future, first login to HeinOnline using your library card number, then login to your individual MyHein account.
