Great Resources: HeinOnline – Subject Compilations of State Laws

heinonline-logoThis thirty-fifth installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.

“Subject Compilations of State Laws” is a library resource on HeinOnline which gives users the ability to navigate books, journals articles, and state laws through an alphabetical list of topics.  The topic list is extensive, covering almost any subject, and links resources through related topics.  The results lists provide the citation to the resource, a short summary of the content relevant to the selected topic and on what pages to find it, and in most cases a link to view the content.  The database may also be organized chronologically, or searched through various searching options, as in by keyword or title.  The alphabetical subject index allows users to do very specific or very broad research; for example, the topic “equal protection” yields just a few results, “while equal rights” provides nearly one hundred.

To access Subject Compilations of State Laws, go to http://www.law.sc.edu/library/limited_access/ and select HeinOnline.
