Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals and HeinOnline: A Match Made in Information Heaven

Shannon Furtak

"The Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals is the only multilingual legal journal index in the world for people doing international and comparative legal research. No other tool out there really provides the depth of coverage we provide, in pure scope of the number of countries covered and the amount of journals in different languages we index." Marci Hoffman

Yesterday, we published a guest blog post authored by Marci Hoffman, the editor of AALL's Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals. Additionally, the current issue of the AALL Spectrum features an in-depth article about this valuable title and its relationship with HeinOnline, and the efforts of both organizations to reach a wider audience. It discusses how titles are selected for inclusion in IFLP, the enhancements the database version offers, and more. Both Marci Hoffman and Hein's Vice President of Sales, Shannon Hein, were interviewed for the article.
