HeinOnline Scholar Check

Last week we blogged about the Fastcase case retrieval and full text linking features now available in HeinOnline.  ScholarCheck is another useful tool that is gradually being integrated into the HeinOnline data bases available to Massachusetts Trial Court Law Library card holders.

ScholarCheck is digital social indexing of scholarly material. The ScholarCheck icon will appear when this tool can be used to find the most cited and influential articles on a subject or by a specific author. ScholarCheck will lead you to articles that are already enhanced with full text linking to cases or other articles cited within. 

The ability to seamlessly link and refine searches with ScholarCheck, in conjunction with full text linking and HeinOnline's standard search tools, gives researchers an efficient and unique content relational method of conducting their inquiries.
