HeinOnline contains a large collection of libraries consisting of primary and secondary legal documents. Most can be accessed as PDF copies of the original text. To find a resource, first select a subscribed library. Depending on the library, you may have options to conduct a search, enter information into the Citation Navigator, narrow the results by choosing a "Browse by" selection, or click on the (+) icons to expand a selection.
When you have found your desired document, click the hyperlink to view. Turn to different pages using the arrow icons at the top of the screen, select a page number from the scroll-down menu, or choose a chapter or article from the left navigation pane when available.
