HeinOnline - Now with Fastcase!

There's been a new addition to the HeinOnline database that we want our users to know about: HeinOnline is newly partnered with Fastcase. In integrating the two platforms, users can research both law reviews and case law at the same time, using hyperlinks to navigate between the two.

For those of you who do not know, HeinOnline is an excellent resource that can be really helpful to use in any legal research project. Among its many databases, it has an extensive law review and legal journal database that provides the articles to you in PDFs, so you can view them as they were originally published in print. It also has a comprehensive database in which you can conduct historical New York legal research, both from a statutory and a case law perspective.

You can check out HeinOnline and its new partnership with Fastcase here. (Scroll down to HeinOnline and click on the link; the databases are in alphabetical order.) If you are off-campus, please sign into TLC web first before accessing our databases.

We’ll post again soon. In the meantime, keep calm and read on.
