Congress and the Courts: New a-la-carte library from HeinOnline once again demonstrates the Company knows its legal bibliography
Quoting from the HeinOnline Blog post:
[The new Congress and the Courts] library focuses on development and growth of the federal courts and the judiciary as a source of original material of congressional fact finding and decision making. Decades of legislative intent, testimony, and pre-enactment history is provided in one centralized library.
Congress and the Courts features:
Congress & the Courts: A Legislative History 1787-2010 Compiled by William H. Manz
Federal Judicial Center Publications
Other Related Works, including Administrative Conference of the United States: Recommendations and Reports – Vols. 1-4, 1978-1995 (1968-1995)
Periodicals, including Federal Probation – Vols. 1-75 (1937-2011)
Links to Scholarly Articles
CFR Title 28 – Judicial Administration
The post notes that libraries on standing order for Congress & the Courts: A Legislative History 1787-2010 by William H. Manz will have complimentary access to the entire a-la-carte library in HeinOnline through December 2012. Congress and the Courts will appear as a subscribed library under one's HeinOnline account until then. For additional information, see HeinOnline's Congress & the Courts brochure.
There is still a need for expert legal bibliography in the 21st century. Once again, it is good to see that there remains one vendor in the industry that knows how to use legal bibliographic skills to create a database research service which provides relevant primary and secondary resources. HeinOnline consistly proves that legal bibliography has an important contribution to make to online legal search. Some of our very expensive search vendors could take a lesson from HeinOnline. Just because they publish this or that title doesn't automatically make those titles worthy for expensive bundled database inclusion. [JH]
