This June marks a special month for the LGBTQ community. Not only is it Pride month, but it’s also the 50th anniversary of annual LGBTQ and Pride traditions. The very first Pride march took place on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in New York City on June 28, 1970. More than 500 Pride-related events have been canceled this year due to the COVID pandemic, but that hasn’t stopped people from celebrating. The LGBTQ community has found ways to celebrate online, and others are marching in black lives matter protests to elevate black voices in solidarity for equal rights. Let’s take a closer look at this movement…

A Fathers’ Day Investigation of the Fathers’ Rights Movement

Law, Law Journal Library, National Survey of State Laws, Session Laws, Subject Compilations of State Laws, World Treaty Library
Tara Kibler

Family law is an area of the legal field concerning matters relating to marriage and partnership, divorce, adoption, surrogacy, child protection from abuse and neglect, and other domestic issues. In the last century or so, the transformation of certain definitions (e.g. wife, marriage, gender) and the recognition of women’s rights have dramatically changed the practice. Over the past few decades, one group has made it their mission to reform family law and the family court system further—fathers. Join us as we use HeinOnline to investigate the history of family law and the relatively new fathers’ rights movement.

I Saw A Tiger … in My Neighbor’s Backyard

In the early days of quarantine, nearly a hundred years ago, all the way back at the end of March, one thing united us all. No, not the sewing struggle to make our own masks or collective worrying over when we would ever see a roll of Charmin in the wild again. It was Tiger King. The true crime-character study-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it docuseries had more than 34 million views in the U.S. within its first 10 days on Netflix, and was an inescapable recommendation, topic of discussion, and fodder for many quality memes.

In case you somehow missed out, a brief synopsis: Tiger King chronicles the years-long feud between Oklahoma private zoo owner Joe Exotic (real name: Joseph Maldonado-Passage…

Tools for Researching Remotely in HeinOnline

When you’re stuck in a research rut, the library is an understated comfort. Libraries are a place of wonder, filled to the brim with every flavor of resource imaginable, and manned by experts willing and able to help patrons tackle nearly any research question. Among their many roles, librarians are explorers, armed with the skills required to navigate their expansive collections and locate exactly what you need (if not more).

As researching remotely has become the norm over the past few months, many librarians have shifted their expertise to a virtual role to continue their passion of assisting patrons and students. At times, however, this new remote research dynamic may require you to venture into HeinOnline without a trusty librarian by your side…

Researching the Facts About Police Brutality and Racial Disparity

American History, Criminal Justice, Criminal Justice & Criminology, Current Events, Law Journal Library
HeinOnline Blogger

In the past week, peaceful protests, violent riots, and spontaneous looting have erupted across the United States in the name of George Floyd, a black man who recently died following an altercation with the police. Many engaging in these both lawful and unlawful protests do so to stand against police brutality and to stand with the Black Lives Matter movement.

Racial disparity in the use of lethal force by law enforcement has been a recurring point of contention for the United States. Before diving into this recent development, read up on the hot topic in this previous blog post.

Customer Suggestion, Law Journal Library, New Features
Tara Kibler

Over its 20 years of existence, HeinOnline has evolved into a premier online research platform primarily due to constructive feedback from its customers. When users find something in HeinOnline that can be enhanced, they send us an email, give us a call, start a live chat, or even send us a social media message.
