Emeryville, CA—Innovative is pleased to announce that resources from HeinOnline, William S. Hein & Co's premier online research product, now integrates into the Encore Synergy discovery application. A single search of Encore Synergy will now include results from HeinOnline's Core Collections, which comprise more than 40 million pages of legal history, including more than 1,500 law and related periodicals. This new integration represents an advance for discovery of legal research and reflects Innovative's continuing commitment to law libraries.

Key Features

In addition to discovery, Encore Synergy users benefit from one-click access to full-text PDFs or Web pages from HeinOnline. Full-text indexing of HeinOnline content allows the greatest possible access to this material by legal researchers.

Encore Synergy also extends its faceted search technology to HeinOnline resources. Users can select facets to limit Hein results by date, by collection (such as the American Association of Law Libraries), or by content type (such as article, case, comment, and more).

Law library users can search Encore Synergy by HeinOnline citations. This functionality uniquely targets the needs of law students who are familiar with complete and partial Bluebook citations, as well as extending findability to novice users who might remember keywords in the non-abbreviated publication title.

Extending Partnership

"We are proud to have brought HeinOnline resources into Encore Synergy," says John McCullough, Vice President, Encore Division. "Law libraries can now provide more research value to users in a single discovery search. We have partnered with HeinOnline in the past for staff-side functions in the Millennium ILS; and we are pleased to extend that partnership in service of law library users."

The integration is available for libraries that have Encore Synergy and are subscribers to HeinOnline Core Collections. HeinOnline will be available with Encore Synergy Release 4.1. If you have questions about the Encore Synergy discovery application at law libraries, please write info@encoreforlibraries.com or visit us at booth #817 at AALL 2011.

The Bluebook is published and distributed by the Harvard Law Review Association.
