We Celebrated Pride Month with a Brand-New Database

This month, we proudly presented our new LGBTQ+ Rights database, the newest addition to our perpetually free Social Justice Suite.

We Released a New Feature for IFLP

HeinOnline’s Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (IFLP) database is an interactive online version of AALL’s Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals, the preeminent multilingual index to articles and book reviews appearing in more than 800 legal journals worldwide. This month, we released IFLP Alerts, which allows individuals to tailor custom alerts delivered via email. Read our blog post or watch this tutorial for more information!

We Added the Dobbs v. Jackson Official Slip Opinion to HeinOnline

On June 24, the Supreme Court ruled in Dobbs v. Jackson to overturn Roe v. Wade, the court case that had established a constitutional right to an abortion. Our blog post goes into more detail and provides a link to the Court’s official Slip Opinion in this case.

We Demonstrated How to Locate an Executive Order

This month, we provided a Tip of the Week showing you how you can locate an executive order in HeinOnline’s U.S. Presidential Library or the Federal Register. Watch the tutorial or read the blog post for the how-to.

We Examined Mass Shootings in the United States

In the wake of several recent mass shootings in the United States—including in HeinOnline’s hometown of Buffalo, NY—we examined statistics on mass shootings and the history of gun control legislation in America in this blog post.

We Dove Into the History of the Lavender Scare

In this month’s Secrets of the Serial Set edition, and in honor of Pride Month and the release of our new LGBTQ+ Rights database, we explored the Lavender Scare, a concerted effort to remove gay employees from the federal government. Learn more about it here.

We Explored the Happiest Place on Earth: Reedy Creek

The Disney fan community has been abuzz the last few months over a bombshell development out of the Florida legislature: the repeal of the Reedy Creek Improvement District. Devotees of Walt Disney World have long been familiar with Reedy Creek, but its recent headline-making repeal was likely the first time many laypeople had even heard of the district. Check out this Walt Disney World-themed post for the details.
