Three Research Libraries on Key Social & Historical Issues

HeinOnline is an extensive research database you can access from home with your CSU ID and Scholar library PIN. HeinOnline is known for complete coverage of materials from their inception–for example, you can access the CFR back to 1938, the year it started. But the information provider also brings you topical collections on some interesting issues. Here are three of note.

  • Gun Regulation and Legislation in America – “This timely database brings together essential periodicals, compiled legislative histories, CRS reports, Congressional hearings, United States Supreme Court briefs, monographs, and other related materials on the difficult and controversial topic of regulating firearms in the United States. It also includes an extensive bibliography and a balanced selection of external resources to further research this subject.”
  • Slavery in America and the World: History, Culture & Law – “This HeinOnline collection brings together a multitude of essential legal materials on slavery in the United States and the English-speaking world. It includes every statute passed by every colony and state on slavery, every federal statute dealing with slavery, and all reported state and federal cases on slavery.”
  • Women and the Law (Peggy) – “Women and the Law (Peggy) is a collection that brings together books, biographies, and periodicals dedicated to the role of women in society and the law. It provides a convenient platform for users to research the progression of women’s roles and rights in society over the past 200 years.” Includes materials on abortion, feminism, suffrage and more.
