HeinOnline at Your Fingertips

Through a special arrangement between the Burns Law Library and the William S. Hein & Co., Inc., GW Law alumni now have access to HeinOnline’s Law Journal Collection containing more than 1,700 law and law-related, full-text periodicals covering more than 90 subject areas. The collection encompasses the first issues through the most recent issues of the periodicals, based, of course, on contracts with the publishers. 

HeinOnline is a revolutionary innovation in legal research. Whereas other databases that do not offer materials in citable formats have long presented a challenge to legal researchers who must be precise in citing sources, HeinOnline provides materials in PDF format and has enabled libraries, both in law schools and law firms, to discard their voluminous holdings of bound volumes. By making the law journal collection available to alumni, the Burns Law Library hopes to provide a valuable resource that will complement other online services.
