HeinOnline Android App Now Available


The HeinOnline app is a great tool for accessing the wealth of information on HeinOnline via your mobile device, and the app is now available for Android users!  Using either the Android or iOS app, you can browse the many HeinOnline collections that the Ross-Blakley Law Library subscribes to, run a keyword search, retrieve documents by citation, and even download image-based PDFS to your device.

Note on HeinOnline access via the app:  ASU utilizes IP authentication for students, faculty, and staff access to HeinOnline, so in order to IP authenticate using the HeinOnline app, you must be on campus. The authentication will be good for 30 days.  After 30 days you will need to once again authenticate on campus.
