We Unveiled a New Database on Water Rights

We Examined the Newly Signed IRA
On August 16, President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act into law. You’ve probably heard something about it, especially as this legislation has been a long time coming—ever since Biden took office. Originally titled the Build Back Better plan, which was to mainly focus on fighting climate change and building a larger social safety net, Biden’s bigger plans were chipped away due to negotiations with Republicans and moderate Democrats, leaving the much smaller, though not insignificant, Inflation Reduction Act of 2022.
We Investigated the Raid at Mar-a-Lago
Donald Trump may no longer be president, but it seems his name is in the news just as frequently as during his term. Between the Capitol riot on January 6, 2021, and now the finding of classified documents at his Palm Beach club, Mar-a-Lago, it seems that Trump cannot escape from scandal. So what has been happening at Mar-a-Lago in the past few months? Dive into the details with some help from HeinOnline.
We Showcased How to Cite Check Using HeinOnline
Imagine you’re a second-year law student and you’ve been assigned with the task to cite check a soon-to-be published article. This task can seem daunting to a student, but with HeinOnline it’s actually pretty simple! Watch this short tutorial or keep reading to learn more.
We Featured the Extensive Legal Classics Library
By now you probably know that HeinOnline contains thousands of multidisciplinary periodicals, essential government documents, international resources, and case law. But did you know it also contains tens of thousands of classic treatises and rare books that can be found in only a handful of libraries around the world? These gems can be found in HeinOnline’s Legal Classics library and are filled with works from some of the greatest minds in history.
We Examined a 20th-Century True Crime Mystery
Detective-Inspector Arthur Neil knew the deaths were not accidental. He just didn’t have any proof.
It started with a letter on his desk at Scotland Yard. The letter was from Joseph Crossley, a landlord from Blackpool, and it contained two newspaper clippings. The first was an article from the News of the World about the death of newly married Margaret Lofty, on December 18, 1914. Margaret had been found drowned in her bathtub the day after her wedding to John Lloyd.
We Launched a New Series: HeinOnline in the Classroom
It’s the start of a new school year, so this seems like the perfect time for us to introduce a new, occasional series from the HeinOnline blogging team! If you’re reading this, chances are you already know what a great tool HeinOnline is for conducting your own research. We highlighted ways that HeinOnline can also be used for instruction in the college classroom.
We Uncovered the Controversy of Operation Iraqi Freedom
The 21st anniversary of 9/11 passed this month, and for many Americans, the fear, grief, and devastation that followed the terrorist attacks are just as fresh as they were in 2001. In this Secrets of the Serial Set edition, we examined Operation Iraqi Freedom, which was the military response that derived from 9/11 and also from decades of tension between the United States and Saddam Hussein’s regime.
We Put a Spotlight on LibGuides
We know how valuable LibGuides are for librarians and researchers alike, which is why we have created them for almost all of our databases. Copying is usually frowned upon—but not in this case. So go ahead and copy them. We encourage it! And keep reading to learn more about how you can take full advantage of HeinOnline’s wealth of LibGuides.
