Content Updates

The Law Journal Library continues to grow with the addition of 10 new journals this month! The Religion and the Law database received nearly 50 new titles this month and Reports of U.S. Presidential Commissions grew by 40 new titles. Other substantial updates have been made to various databases, including Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS), History of International Law, and Scottish Legal History: Featuring Publications of the Stair Society.

New Database

Art Antiquity and Law is the newest database available exclusively in HeinOnline. This database features complete coverage of the industry-leading Art Antiquity and Law journal, which provides up-to-date and timely coverage of important issues in the art and history communities.

Art Antiquity and Law is designed for people who work in areas other than law, as well as for legal practitioners. Many articles are written by non-lawyers who have particular experience in applying or reforming the law. Art Antiquity and Law is accessible to collectors, auction house and market consultants, archaeologists, developers, investors, anthropologists, fund managers, insurers and loss adjusters, solicitors and barristers, university lawyers, local authorities, museum officers, art historians, tax advisers, owners of historic properties and cultural policy advisers. In addition to journal content, several books on this topic are included in the current database.

Major Database Updates

The Session Laws Library indexing project continues: all 50 states are already indexed to the chapter or act level from 2000 to date. During the summer of 2017, we announced an amended tactic: states would be indexed back to inception one-by-one, beginning with the most accessed states. Last month, the indexing for Texas was was completed back to inception. Other states that have been indexed back to inception include California, New York, Maryland, Florida, Ohio, and Georgia. Moving forward, the next focus will be on Indiana.

Provincial Statutes of Canada includes the Provincial Statutes for all ten Canadian provinces and contains more than a million pages of public and private acts passed by Canadian provincial governments. This database has been updated to include current coverage for Manitoba. Other provinces containing current, revised, and historical coverage include Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, and Yukon Territory.

New Feature

Thanks to a suggestion from Vicki Leung at the University of Windsor, an additional format has been added to the citation tool. Users can now instantly receive citations for HeinOnline documents according to the Canadian Guide to Uniform Legal Citation (also known as the McGill Guide).

The McGill Guide was created in 1986 to establish a uniform bilingual standard for legal citation in Canada. It has been published by the McGill Law Journal and is now in its eighth edition. Most Canadian law journals, law schools and practitioners, as well as many courts, have adopted this standard.

Spinelli’s Oral Histories

We’re very excited to announce our newest Oral History video this month featuring Shane Marmion, President of William S. Hein & Co., Inc. and Shannon Hein, Executive Vice President of William S. Hein & Co., Inc.
