Highlights from the Past Month

We Dove Into Our New Administrative Procedure Act Database

Titled the Bremer-Kovacs Collection: Historic Documents Related to the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946, HeinOnline’s newest database is designed to make the APA more accessible and understandable. Compiled by Kathryn E. Kovacs, Emily S. Bremer, and Charlotte D. Schneider, the content within the database helps contextualize this important piece of legislation. Read all about the database and its unique features with this blog post.

We Added a New Issue of Preview of United States Supreme Court Cases

The ABA released Volume 49 #4 of Preview of United States Supreme Court Cases, featuring Biden v. Missouri, the case debating President Biden’s ruling for mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations for healthcare workers.

We Expanded the U.S. Federal Legislative History Library

This month we added 25 titles to our U.S. Federal Legislative History Library, thanks to a generous donation from Jones Day. Head over to HeinOnline to check out the new additions!

We Explored the Updates to Our States Constitutions Illustrated Database

Back in March, we updated researchers on new material that was added to State Constitutions Illustrated. In the last nine months, we’ve added more material! Read our dedicated blog post for an update to see what’s new in this database.

We Remembered the January 6 Capitol Attack

On January 6, 2021, millions of Americans watched in horror as a mob consisting of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol building to disrupt the counting of electoral votes and protest the assumed win of Joseph R. Biden Jr. A year later, our nation still feels the effects of this catastrophic event, which led to the deaths of five people, not including the two officers who later died by suicide following the riot. Our blog post dives into what happened and related material in HeinOnline.

We Expanded Our Oxford University Press Journal Content

Due to an updated agreement with the publisher, 13 of Oxford’s journals are now behind a shortened, three-year embargo, bringing nearly 20 years of new content into HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library! Check out the blog post to read about the now-available content.

We Uncovered Another Secret of the Serial Set

It was the season for gift-giving, so it was only fitting that December’s Secrets of the Serial Set post uncovered the story behind one of the most famous gifts ever given to the United States of America: the Statue of Liberty. Learn all about it with our latest blog post in this series, where we unveil the wealth of American history found in the United States Congressional Serial Set.

We Investigated Another Crime of the Century

The twentieth century had just begun, but the press would quickly christen the bombing of the Los Angeles Times building the “crime of the century.” Join us as we delve into the story and its context in American history in this blog post.
