This fifty-third installment continues our series on HeinOnline’s digital collections.
The United States Statutes at Large is the official source for laws and resolutions passed by Congress. Originally published by Little, Brown and Company beginning in 1845, responsibility for publication was transferred to the Government Printing Office in 1874. HeinOnline now offers access to the entire archive of the United States Statutes at Large, dating back to 1789. Every law, public and private, ever enacted by Congress is included in the U.S. Statutes at large, including all treaties and international agreements approved by the Senate prior to 1948. Also included is the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, the Constitution, amendments to the Constitution, Indian and international treaties, and presidential proclamations.
Researchers can browse by volume, popular name, or public law number, as well as browse within Indian or international treaties. The collection features a convenient Citation Navigator to help find documents easily. The collection also includes several helpful compilations, including compilations of early federal codes, as well as titles compiled by subject, to help the researcher find subject-specific documents without having to search the entire collection.
