HeinOnline Databases

At its launch in May of 2000, HeinOnline sought to provide the authority of print with the ease of online access. HeinOnline’s first online database, the Law Journal Library, marked the platform’s initial entry into the online research community. Since then, the Law Journal Library has grown to include nearly 40 other disciplines, in addition to law, and has become a resource relied on by millions.

In addition to its Law Journal Library, HeinOnline has released more than 100 other document and subject-specific databases over the past twenty years which have become essential to multidisciplinary research. Each month, these databases grow with the addition of new content at no cost to the subscriber. Each year, HeinOnline works diligently on curating new and exciting databases with the help of experts, editors, and authors.
