HeinOnline is an internet service launched in 2000 that is a source of legal information, much like Westlaw and LexisNexis. Like those services, use of HeinOnline requires a subscription, although most law schools provide access to students for free. There are three major distinctions between this service and other such services in terms of the scope and type of materials offered. This article is about the year 2000. ... This article is about law in society. ... Westlaw is one of two major fee-based online legal research systems, providing access to state and federal statutes, case law materials, public records, and other legal resources. ... LexisNexis is a popular searchable archive of content from newspapers, magazines, legal documents and other printed sources. ...


First, HeinOnline provides a narrower scope of materials, excluding newspaper reports, as well as most federal and all state case law and most administrative material. The service delivers only:

Second, with respect to law reviews, HeinOnline is far more comprehensive, with material that in some cases stretches back to the mid 1800s. The Supreme Court Building, Washington, D.C. The Supreme Court Building, Washington, D.C., (large image) The Supreme Court of the United States, located in Washington, D.C., is the highest court (see supreme court) in the United States; that is, it has ultimate judicial authority within the United States... The Federal Register contains most routine publications and public notices of United States government agencies. ...

A law review is a scholarly journal focusing on legal issues, published by an organization of students at a law school. ... Events and Trends Beginning of the Napoleonic Wars (1803 - 1815). ...


Third, HeinOnline's materials are available only as PDF files, so the advantage of historic depth is balanced by the disadvantage that the database cannot be searched by keyword. Portable Document Format (PDF) is a file format developed by Adobe Systems for representing documents in a manner that is independent of the original application software, hardware, and operating system used to create those documents. ... In computer science, a keyword is an identifier which indicates a specific command. ...

Law School collaboration with HeinOnline (656 words)
Enter HeinOnline, an ambitious project to make the country's law school journals available on the web, from each journal's date of inception, and then to expand to an array of other classic legal materials.
HeinOnline, a new service that provides online access to historical law journals, was a collaborative effort among, from left, Carl Lagoze, digital library scientist in computer science; Professor Claire Germain, Cornell law librarian; Rich Marisa, digital library specialist in Cornell Information Technologies; and (not shown) Daniel Rosati of William S. Hein and Co. Inc.
Now that HeinOnline has put historical law journals online, law libraries have the flexibility of keeping only single copies of those journals on their shelves, putting them in storage or discarding them, depending on their preservation policies.
