Major Database Updates (2)

We’re pleased to inform Cataloging Legal Literature subscribers that the newest database revision has been completed in HeinOnline. Included are an explanation of the infrequency of online updates due to the April 2017 “freezing” of the RDA Toolkit and the 3R Project, corrections, and amended topics covered in various cataloging resources.

We are always increasing the value of a HeinOnline subscription, and are pleased to announce that we will be expanded our existing agreement with John Wiley & Sons, Inc.! HeinOnline currently has eight Wiley journals available and will be expanding the relationship to include an additional 13 titles. These titles will be added at no added cost and are expected to be available within the next couple of months.
