Top Five Ways to Get In Touch

Exploring HeinOnline, HeinOnline Support
Shannon Furtak

It's 10 a.m. on the Monday your legal brief is due. You've been up since yesterday, and coffee is the only thing keeping your eyes open. You need to check all of your citations to make sure they're correct, and just realized you need to retrieve several Federal Register documents that you thought you printed in the library, but they've gone missing.

It's 4 p.m. on Friday, and you're looking forward to an evening with your long-lost friends, when your boss calls. She needs you to find the official version of several Supreme Court cases, and she needs them NOW.

Don't panic!

HeinOnline is the world's largest fully-searchable, image-based legal research database.  It's one-stop shopping when you need government documents, case law, journal articles, treaties, and more. If you need to know exactly how an article or statutory document looked when it was published in print, quickly perform a search for material pertaining to your research topic, or find related documents and citation information, HeinOnline has exactly what you need to get your work done.
