MyHein is HeinOnline’s personal research tool that helps power researchers save time. Anyone with HeinOnline access is able to set up their own free, personal account allowing them to:
MyHein is integrated with Google Single Sign-On (SSO) to allow linking between MyHein and Google accounts. Google can instantly log you into MyHein as soon as you start your research.
From within HeinOnline, navigate to the MyHein Profile drop-down and select Log in.
Select the “Sign in with Google” button that appears.
A pop-up will appear, prompting you to enter your Google account information. Once you’ve done so, you’ll be directed to a new page prompting you to either log in to your existing MyHein account or create one.
After logging into MyHein, you can check that the linking worked in the MyHein Account Settings tab.*
*Users can also perform the initial link from this location.
Once users have taken the steps above, they'll have established a connection between their Google account and MyHein that will now register in the future. Whenever they're signed into their Google account and researching in HeinOnline, users will automatically be signed into their MyHein account as well. Users can confirm this from anywhere in HeinOnline by looking at the MyHein drop-down, which will display the first name of the account user when logged in.
If you find yourself needing to break the connection between your MyHein and Google accounts, remember that you can use the unlink feature within the MyHein Account Settings tab.
NOTE: User will need to disconnect from the Google interface as well to fully unlink the accounts.
