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.

Many of you have been asking what our plan is to fill the gap in the CFR in HeinOnline. Therefore, we wanted to take a moment to share our plans with all of you.

We are alternating between updating the beginning and the end of the gap each month. For example, in August we are adding 2001 to HeinOnline. In September, we will go back and add 1989.
