New and Updated Databases on HeinOnline

  • HeinOnline logo

HeinOnline recently unveiled some exciting updates for our members. The database History of Bankruptcy: Taxation & Economic Reform in America Part III was added to our subscription and the Criminal Justice & Criminology database underwent a complete reorganization and revision. Continue reading for some highlights of these two exciting collections.

The History of Bankruptcy: Taxation & Economic Reform in America Part III database is a great place to explore how bankruptcy law has changed through the years. This database has over 800 titles related to bankruptcy in America, including legislative histories to over 25 bankruptcy acts and over 100 CRS Reports related to bankruptcy. The books available in this database are a treasure trove of historical treatises, including older editions of popular titles like Collier on Bankruptcy, Cowans Bankruptcy Law and Practice, and Herzog's Bankruptcy Forms and Practice. The books also include many materials from the Government Printing/Publishing Office (GPO), like the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure, 2009-2019, and the U.S. Department of Justice, like the Handbook for Chapter 7 Trustees, 2012.

The Criminal Justice & Criminology database is a revamp of the old HeinOnline database, Criminal Justice in America: U.S. Attorney General Opinions, Reports and Publications. This revised database "explores how criminal justice has changed in America and the effect criminology has had on those changes". The collection includes government documents, pamphlets, memoirs, and books. Because of the wide-breadth of the collection (over 2,000 titles!), each document is indexed with at least one of 16 subject categories: Attorney General, Crimes and Criminals, Criminal Statistics, Criminology, Drug Enforcement, Government Law, Investigation and Forensics, Juvenile Justice, Law and Procedure, Law Enforcement, Organized Crime, Penology, Reform and Recidivism, Reminiscences, Sex Crimes, and Victimology. You can browse this collection by subject from the All Titles tab. This collection also includes Attorney General Reports and Opinions and Reports from the Government Accountability Office (GAO). For guidance on navigating the Criminal Justice & Criminology collection, check out its LibGuide written by the team at HeinOnline.
