Social Justice Suite
Included in all HeinOnline Core subscriptions and free of charge to any interested organizations.*
In October 2016, HeinOnline unveiled Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law, a unique database released free of charge on a global scale to help librarians guide their communities and create an environment for open and positive dialogue. Less than three years later, we announced another free database, Gun Regulation and Legislation in America, with the same vision. In 2020, we were proud to offer Civil Rights and Social Justice, another free research database dedicated to the fight for civil rights in America. In 2021, at a crucial moment in history, we released the Open Society Justice Initiative, as the fourth free database within our Social Justice Suite. In June 2022, in honor of Pride Month, we presented the LGBTQ+ Rights database to showcase the history of the gay rights movement, as well as the inequalities that still exist today.
To honor our core value of corporate citizenship, Hein offers these five databases free of charge to its core American and international subscribers, and to the libraries of any other interested organizations or institutions.
Register now for perpetual complimentary access to the entire Social Justice Suite. We hope that in making these materials accessible to all, we can help foster knowledge, facilitate civil discourse, and encourage action for the betterment of our nation.
*If you are a HeinOnline Core subscriber, please note the Social Justice Suite is automatically included in your access, no further action or registration is required.

These are the same high-quality records utilized for all HeinOnline databases and for Cassidy print publications. This valuable tool will be delivered in two .mrc files that are easily loaded into any ILS or discovery platform that accepts MARC records.
