About the Series

Cheryl Nyberg’s Subject Compilations of State Laws has long been recognized as the most comprehensive source for identifying thousands of articles, books, government documents, looseleaf services, court opinions and Internet sites that compare state laws on hundreds of subjects. The first volume, 1960-1979, compiled by Lynn Foster and Carol Boast, won the AALL Joseph L. Andrews Bibliographical Award in 1982. Also, in 2009 the database version of this collection won the 2009 AALL Best New Product Award. The series has been previously chosen for Best Legal Reference Books and has been called “unique,” “priceless” and “irreplaceable.”

About the Database

This HeinOnline database, which is updated regularly, has revolutionized historical state subject searching. Researchers have instantaneous access to more than 26,000 bibliographic records, many with extensive annotations. There is no longer a need to browse the twenty-plus print volumes in the series.

Most importantly, the annotations link directly to articles and other documents residing in HeinOnline. In all, more than 13,000 records link to HeinOnline periodicals, while the majority of other records link to case law or external websites.

Also included in this collection is the State Law Index: An Index and Digest to the Legislation of the States of the United States Enacted During the Biennium, volumes 1-12 (1925-1948).
