Use HeinOnline to Expand Your Research

HeinOnline is an extremely useful database that includes a variety of resources. It can be accessed via the law library’s homepage under Quicklinks.

Consider using Hein when searching for ‘older’ information, especially if you’re experiencing difficulty finding results on Westlaw and Lexis. One particularly useful database is the Law Journal Library, which contains thousands of law and law-related periodicals with comprehensive coverage from the start of each publication.

After accessing the Law Journal Library, a publication search can be performed or publications can be browsed by letter of the alphabet. Once inside the needed periodical, a search can be run or the article citation can be used to go directly to the desired volume.
