We are excited to announce that Phase I of the U.S. Congressional Serial Set is coming soon to HeinOnline! This will be included at no additional charge for U.S. Academic and Core Plus subscribers, Government, Politics & Law subscribers, and subscribers of HeinOnline’s U.S. Congressional Documents database. The Serial Set is an ongoing project in HeinOnline with the goal to add more than four million pages each year until completion.

New Feature

Matching text within search results has been updated from yellow highlighted text to boldfaced text. This gives search results pages a simpler, more streamlined appearance.

Major Database Updates (2)

National Survey of State Laws now has two new chapters: Domestic Violence and Restrictive Covenants in Employment. Four chapters have also been updated.

The 21st Century Cures Act: A Legislative History of Public Law No. 114-255 is a new title that has been added to the U.S. Federal Legislative History Library. This legislative history was compiled by William H. Manz.

In the News

HeinOnline is a great place to research issues making headlines in today’s news. Better yet, since all content in HeinOnline is composed of exact PDF replicas of original print material, source authenticity is never in doubt. Research relevant topics in databases such as the U.S. International Trade Library, Immigration Law & Policy in the U.S., and History of Supreme Court Nominations.

Spinelli’s Oral Histories

A two-part video series is now available featuring Jon S. Schultz, Professor Emeritus of Law and Retired Director of the O’Quinn Law Library.
