HeinOnline - Not just articles

HeinOnline, which can be found on the Law Library's Research Database page, has always been a great place to find both old and fairly new law journal articles in PDF format. But did you know about all the other materials you can now find on HeinOnline? There is a Federal Register Library which also includes the Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents. You can find a Legislative History Library with selected compiled legislative histories and a Treaties Library which provides a great way to find a full text PDF version of a treaty. There are many other materials that you might also need such as Attorney General opinions, a treasury of classic legal books and a Supreme Court Library.

The only caveat about using this site is that its search function is not the best. It is however a wonderful place to retrieve a document when you already have a citation or to browse for one if you know the year and most of the details.
