Criminal Justice & Criminology, What's New

It’s hard to believe that HeinOnline turned 17 years old in May. In our continued efforts to enhance our users’ research experiences, we often evaluate and add content to existing resources. Occasionally, the nature of the material added warrants content rearrangement. If enough content has been added to change the scope of the entire collection, the collection may be re-named to appropriately represent the material included within it.

The U.S. Attorney General & Department of Justice Collection has officially been renamed Criminal Justice in America: U.S Attorney General Opinions, Reports, and Publications. Since its release in January of 2006, the content included in this collection has expanded significantly: the title count has increased from 12 to 351, the volume count has more than tripled from 221 to 766, and the page count has more than doubled from under 90,000 to more than 219,000!

In addition to its revised name, categorical browse options have been added.

Check out the updated structure on the collection homepage:
