We Announced a New Database: Military and Government
HeinOnline’s Military and Government allows users to research the functions of the federal government in administering these essential armed forces, as well as the issues confronting service personnel both on and off the battlefield—from women’s changing role in the military to the development of new weaponry to navigating benefits offered by the Department of Veterans Affairs after service.

We Put a Spotlight on National Survey of State Laws

We Finished Indexing Kentucky Session Laws
The Session Laws Library indexing project continues: all 50 states are already indexed to the chapter or act level from 2000 to date. In 2017, we announced an amended tactic: states would be indexed back to inception one at a time, beginning with the most accessed states. Last month, the indexing for Kentucky was completed back to inception. Next up, we will be focusing on the state of Oregon.
We Took A Look Back at the History of Transgender People for Pride Month
Although to many the term transgender seems relatively new, its roots can be traced back to ancient civilizations. Verbiage and categorizations have changed over time and vary in different cultures. We explored the history of transgender people and how they are impacted by law today in this blog post.
We Researched the Details of the Tulsa Race Massacre
The Tulsa Race Massacre, also known as the Tulsa Race Riot and the Black Wall Street Massacre, is one of the most devastating incidents of racial violence in American history, but one that, until recently, has largely been hidden from the general popular consciousness. Learn about the details of this historic event with our recent blog post.
