Student Survey Response: Where Can I Find Older Law Review Articles?

Thanks to all students who have responded to the Library and Technology Survey.  If you haven’t completed the survey yet—there’s still time!  We’ve received some great questions/comments so far and will post responses to some of those issues.  Here’s our first response:

HeinOnline is an outstanding resource for law review articles.  GMU law students may link to HeinOnline from the law library’s listing of Law-Related Databases.

Features of HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library:

  • Contents: more than 1,620 law and law-related periodicals.
  • Coverage: from the first issue published for all periodicals to recently published issues.
  • Search: by article title, author, subject, state or country published, full text, and narrow by date.
  • Format: all of the articles are PDF images of the original journal, meaning footnotes are at the bottom of the page and you can use this version for your journal work.

A short reference guide to using HeinOnline’s Law Journal Library is available here. HeinOnline also offers several training videos.
