This forty-ninth installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.
HeinOnline’s Code of Federal Regulations database provides access to the CFR from its beginning in 1938 to the present day. This collection, while not as diverse in its content as some others, certainly provides in-depth coverage of the regulations. The database is searchable by Year, Title, Part or Section – as well as through a convenient citation locator tool. And, as with much of the content available on Hein, the items retrieved are presented as scanned images of the actual documents.
One may also further explore the collection through helpful links found to the left of the screen: these resources include indexes, lists of sections affected by updates, reference/research guides, and help features. This database would be an excellent research tool for anyone seeking to compare changes in certain regulations over a number of years, or even someone working from home and needing a section of a recent volume.
To access the Code of Federal Regulations database in Hein, click here, select HeinOnline under “Legal Search Engines Research,” and select the collection from the list to your left. Happy Researching!
