About Electronic Table of Contents (eTOC) Alerts

Electronic Table of Contents (eTOC) Alerts are an easy way to manage your online collections, and they ensure that you will never miss a new issue of your selected titles. Alerts are sent to users as soon as content is uploaded to HeinOnline.

Save eTOC Alerts to Your MyHein

To begin, navigate to a desired title using the A-Z index from the top of a collection homepage or by searching the Catalog. Open the title and choose Create eTOC Alert.

This will save the eTOC alert to your MyHein account, and you will receive an email containing the table of contents of all new issues added to the selected title, along with links to each article when they are added to HeinOnline.

Email Alerts

When a new issue or volume is added to an eTOC alert that a user has set up, they will recieve an email from HeinOnline including links to each section of the table of contents available.
