Great Resources: HeinOnline – American Association of Law Libraries (AALL)


This forty-third installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.

HeinOnline’s American Association of Law Libraries (AALL) collection is a great resource for anyone with an interest in legal scholarship, librarianship, or even legal research in general! This database brings together a number of AALL’s publications and encompasses materials from 1908-2013, including the organization’s newsletters and journals. Among these is AALL Spectrum, the current newsletter, and the Law Library Journal (updated to 2013).

A quick look inside the most recent edition of the Law Library Journal reveals articles on naming federal statutes, building library collections, the mission of law libraries, and conducting more meaningful legal research; among others. This journal would be an interesting read for anyone looking to improve their research skills, keep up-to-date with trends in law library development, or gain greater perspective on how legal information is organized and made available.
