Great Resources: HeinOnline – Federal Register Library

This fifteenth installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.


HeinOnline’s Federal Register Library is the perfect resource for anyone looking for up-to-date information from the Federal Register (updated daily by Hein) or the CFR. The Federal Register is easily navigable by using a search panel located to the left of the main page; the database is searchable by both citation and date. Both publications are covered from inception to the present day, with the Federal Register available from volume 1 (1936) to volume 78 (2013) and the CFR from 1938-2012. Supplemental information is also provided, including indexes to the Federal Register and section changes affecting the CFR (available from 1958-2012).

The collection includes other materials as well, such as the Weekly / Daily Compilation of Presidential Documents (1965-2013) and the US Government Manual (1935-2012). There is even a guide to finding US Code and statutory citations that was prepared by the Office of the Federal Register.

To access the Federal Register Library in Hein, click here, select HeinOnline under “Legal Search Engines Research,” and select the collection from the list to your left. Happy Researching!
