Permalinks for HeinOnline Documents

Permalinks for HeinOnline Documents

HeinOnline provides permalinks to individual documents, but they are incomplete; they will not invoke OpenAthens authentication. You can use the OpenAthens Link Generator to create a link that will invoke OpenAthens authentication for an individual document permalink.

Our example will create a permalink to the text of an important speech President Franklin D. Roosevelt gave in Gainesville, Georgia in 1938.

1. Go to HeinOnline Academic and search on these keywords: franklin roosevelt gainesville georgia. The result screen is shown below. Click on the hot-linked title to go to the document.
