HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library Surpasses 3000 Individual Journals

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 has officially surpassed 3,000 journals, all dating back to the first issue ever published! It covers journals published in more than 60 different countries and encompasses more than 1,500 research topics and comes equipped with artificial intelligence tools, visual aids, and more.

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.
