Shannon Sabo

HeinOnline has always offered comprehensive search results. Results will never max out, regardless of the search parameters. For example, the incredibly broad search law from within the Law Journal Library  produces more than 1.8 million results:

 

Infinite Scrolling Now Available

Recently, the HeinOnline development team analyzed the way researchers used search results. They discovered that more than 85% of users do not venture beyond the first page of search results. In order to more intuitively display a greater number of search results, an infinite scroll feature has been implemented. Users will no longer be required to use page arrows to go beyond the first page of results…

Enhancements, Functionality, Session Laws, What's New
Benjamin Boron

How the Project Began

In August of 2015, we received an overwhelming amount of feedback from a customer survey indicating that users wanted additional indexing to the Session Laws Library.

The project was initially launched by ranking all states in the order they’re accessed by HeinOnline users and we began indexing the session laws by 10-year increments, in reverse chronological order while simultaneously indexing all new session laws added to HeinOnline.

Update on the Process

We are pleased to announce that all 50 states are now indexed to the chapter or act level from 2000 to current. Moving forward, we are adjusting our process…

Comparing laws among states has never been easier!

Cataloging Legal Literature: New Update!

Cataloging Legal Literature, What's New
Melody Lembke

cataloginglegalliteraturecover

Revision 1 to Cataloging Legal Literature 4 just issued!

<Sigh of relief, appropriate emoticon>. I managed to issue a “real” continuing resource this time, and not just a treatise in a binder that never got updated as with CLL3 in 1997. Kudos to co-author Melissa Beck and Hein’s Sheila Jarrett for keeping us on track! What happened during that big gap between CLL3 and CLL4? I wasn’t just twiddling my thumbs waiting around for AACR3 to appear; I was sitting at one sports field or another as my sons made it through school. For those of you that can remember me dragging babies to AALL meetings, here’s something to make you feel real “experienced.” My oldest is turning 30 this week…

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia also died suddenly, leaving a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court that has yet to be filled…
