For those HeinOnline users who prefer to search using the Field Search, Hein has added a small but powerful option to this search page. The 'NOT' operator is now a selectable option in addition to the AND/OR operators you are used to using. The 'NOT' operator is used in a search the same way that you would use the AND/OR operators.
Simply select the NOT option from the drop box. The NOT operator is different because it functions as an exclusionary tool. This can be quite useful in weeding out search results that are very similar to the topic you are looking for, but are actually irrelevant to your search and just diluting the results that you really want.
For more information, go to the Hein weblog.

The new search tool allows HeinOnline users to easily search for words or phrases in the section, or the page they are currently viewing.
The new search option is available throughout HeinOnline. When viewing a page, you will see a new magnifying glass icon located above the page image.
Clicking this icon will cause a box to appear, giving you the option to search just the particular page you are viewing, or the entire section. Both word and phrase searching works with this new feature, but please be sure to put your phrase searches in quotation marks (ex."Federal Law").
Hein has also put together a short video detailing how the searching feature is used.
