Library Resource: HeinOnline Trial

Library Resource: HeinOnline Trial

Since Fall 2020, the Campus Library has had a trial of the database HeinOnline. We have had some good usage of the database, but our trial will end on June 30th so we want to remind IU East-affiliated students and faculty that they can use it until then. HeinOnline has a lot of similarities to NexisUni, with a large emphasis on state and federal case law. It provides 300+ years of information on political development and the complete history of the creation of government and legal systems around the world. HeinOnline’s main focus may be on law, history, and politics, but with over 2,900 journals in its collection, there are intersections with subject areas such as education, psychology, political science, business, criminal justice, religion, ecology, and medicine.

Some of the databases that HeinOnline offers are:

Law Journal Library

Criminal Justice & Criminology

Brennan Center for Justice Publications at NYU School of Law

Covid-19: Pandemic Past and Present

History of International Law

John F. Kennedy Assassination Collection

Slavery in America

National Survey of State Laws

Pentagon Papers

Religion and the Law

State Reports: A Historical Archive

Reports of U.S. Presidential Commissions and Other Advisory Bodies

Women and the Law

U.S. Supreme Court Library

U.S Presidential Library

World Constitutions Illustrated

You can search HeinOnline by browsing the individual databases or you can browse by category (i.e., case law, international resources, special collections, U.S. State content, etc.). You can also jump right into your search by using the search box at the top of the HeinOnline homepage.

HeinOnline’s platform also provides a clear and easy way to view, link, search, or download any articles, documents, or book chapters you find, with a navigation bar at the top of each page.

With free access to HeinOnline ending June 30th, if you are interested in viewing this resource and all that it has to offer, now is the time. Since this is a trial resource, we value your feedback!
