Entries Updated to Reflect NCSL’s Major Website Revisions

The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) is a major producer of free 50-state law surveys. The Conference’s website underwent a major overhaul in the last several months, resulting in dozens of broken links in the Subject Compilations of State Laws database in HeinOnline.

As a result of the major overhaul, all of these links in the HeinOnline database have been reviewed and revised. Most of the NCSL website surveys are still available and the new links are working. A significant number of items are no longer found on the NCSL website but some version of many of the missing surveys are on the Internet Archive…

HeinOnline's Tip of the Week: Browse CFR Indexes and Finding Aids

CFR, Content News, Enhancements, Tips and Tricks
admin

Last week, we mentioned in our monthly announcement a number of new enhancements in HeinOnline. We would like to highlight one in particular that is a new enhancement to the CFR library.

In January, we received a feedback email from Susan Lewis-Somers at American University’s Washington College of Law. In the email, Susan suggested we add a “Browse by CFR Index” option to the CFR library in HeinOnline because; “…most users don’t know they can find the indexes at the end of the Bindings browse option.” We thought this suggestion would be a great addition to the CFR library. Thanks Susan…

HeinOnline announced in June it’s completion of the entire back file of the Congressional Record, making us the first and only online database to contain the complete Congressional Record Bound Volumes! Our efforts to close that gap were only part of our ongoing initiative to further advance the material available in our collection of Government Documents. We also recently announced our plans to fill the gap in the CFR, http://heinonline.blogspot.com/2008/08/were-filling-gap-in-cfr-in-heinonline.html.
