Enhancements to HeinOnline's Session Laws Library

Enhancements, Functionality, Session Laws, What's New

In late August, we blogged about the addition of chapter and act indexing to the Session Laws Library. In the first phase of this ambitious project, we are indexing the last 10 years for all 50 states, plus adding indexing to all new session laws added to HeinOnline. In the next stage of the project we will index the session laws of all 50 states for the previous 10 years before that (1995-2004).

The first phase of chapter and act indexing for 2005-current has been completed for the following states:

  • Arizona
  • Arkansas
  • California
  • Florida
  • Illinois
  • Indiana
  • Louisiana
  • Maryland
  • Massachusetts
  • Mississippi
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • Pennsylvania
  • Rhode Island
  • South Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Texas

We have also moved the Chapter portion of the Session Laws Quick Locator tool to a more prominent location on the Session Laws Library homepage:

This tool is also now available from all state pages:

For volumes which have the chapter and act-level indexing, this tool will direct the user to the exact page where each chapter or act begins in the specific state and year of the session laws. For volumes without the in-depth indexing, the tool will perform a text search for the act or chapter number within the specified state and year.

We will continue this project until all 50 states are indexed from inception to current.
