HeinOnline App for Android Now Available


HeinOnline just announced that they have created a new app for Android devices.  This is in addition to the existing app they have for iOS devices.  The app allows users to download the PDF versions of the resources that HeinOnline has become known for such as law journal articles and federal legislative and administrative materials.  With the app, you can retrieve documents by citation, search the document collections by keyword, or browse collections to get the specific resources you need.  While both apps are free to download, please keep in mind that the HeinOnline content is only available to subscribers.  The law library provides a subscription to HeinOnline for UHLC students, faculty, and staff, and many other libraries provide it for their patrons as well.  For more information or to download the apps, see the Google Play website or the iTunes App Store website.
