We Demonstrated How to Compare Hot-Topic Laws by State
In the past few months, debates about gun regulation, abortion, and voting rights have been the center of news outlets due to recent mass shootings and Supreme Court rulings. To help users better understand some of these timely topics, HeinOnline contains National Survey of State Laws (NSSL): an invaluable print and online resource that allows for quick state-by-state law comparison using an interactive chart. This is the easiest way to stay informed on current state law.

A New HeinOnline Database Won the 2022 Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award
We are proud to announce that the Bremer-Kovacs Collection: Historic Documents Related to the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946, a database we unveiled in December 2021, has received the 2022 Joseph L. Andrews Legal Literature Award from the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL). Compiled by Emily S. Bremer, Kathryn E. Kovacs, and Charlotte D. Schneider, this comprehensive database is designed to make the history of the Administrative Procedure Act of 1946 (APA) more accessible and understandable.
We Added to Our World Constitutions Illustrated Database
Back in March, we updated researchers on the content that was released in the World Constitutions Illustrated database from November 2021 to March 2022. Check out what new documents have been added to this ever-growing database.
We Explored the Power of the Filibuster
It’s a word we hear in the news all the time: the filibuster. Whether it’s politicians calling for an end to the filibuster, worrying about an impending filibuster, or praising the merits of the filibuster, the filibuster is both a loved and feared word depending on who you ask. It has the power to make or break any bill that passes through the Senate doors. So what is a filibuster, where did it come from, and why do we still use it today?
We Uncovered Another Secret of the Serial Set
In this month’s Secrets of the Serial Set edition, we uncovered the history of the Wounded Knee Massacre, when in 1891 the U.S. military gunned down more than 150 indigenous people, including women and children, who were largely unarmed. It’s yet another example of the atrocities committed by white settlers and the American government against the native people who inhabited the land before them.
