New HeinOnline Database on Executive Privilege

Executive privilege is the right of the President of the United States to keep certain information confidential from subpoenas and other oversight measures by the legislative and judicial branches of government. 

HeinOnline has a new Executive Privilege database available to CSU affiliates. The database contains primary and secondary source material such as government documents from the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, related books, and scholarly articles.

The database features some unique browse and search options, including limiting by presidential administration or controversy (e.g. Teapot Dome (Grant), Watergate (Nixon)). You can also limit by aspect of privilege such as deliberate process privilege, immunity from civil suits while in office, or presidential communications.  

To access HeinOnline off campus you will need your CSU ID and PIN. If you have any questions about access or need research help, contact your law librarians at
