Hein On Line New Content

First, as far as our research indicates, the addition of the U.S. Government Manual from inception in HeinOnline’s Federal Register library provides the only online source for complete, historical coverage of this important title.

The following description about the Manual comes from the website of GPO Access (http://www.gpoaccess.gov/gmanual/about.html):

“As the official handbook of the Federal Government, the United States Government Manual provides comprehensive information on the agencies of the legislative, judicial, and executive branches. It also includes information on quasi-official agencies; international organizations in which the United States participates; and boards, commissions, and committees. A typical agency description includes:

A list of officials heading major operating units.
A summary statement of the agency's purpose and role in the Federal Government.
A brief history of the agency, including its legislative or executive authority.
A description of its programs and activities.
Information, addresses, and phone numbers to help users locate detailed information on consumer activities, contracts and grants, employment, publications, and other matters of public interest. “

To give some idea of the overall historic value of including a document such as the Manual in HeinOnline, please refer to this link from the first edition (1935), which provides details on the National Archives.


refer to this link about the Library of Congress, which notes, “The Library of Congress was established under the law approved April 24, 1800, appropriating $5,000 "for the purchase of such books as may be necessary for the use of Congress.” .

Interestingly, the text on this page also refers to 2 Stat. 56, c. 37, which of course refers to the U.S. Statutes at Large, a title also available in HeinOnline. Researchers can easily access this page in HeinOnline’s Statutes at Large library from this link

Another new title added with this release is the Code of Emergency Federal Regulations. This title is also available in HeinOnline’s Federal Register Library, and can be purchased as an acid-free reprint from our company.

Finally, we have added links to external sites within HeinOnline’s Treaties and Agreements Library as well as HeinOnline’s U.S. Federal Legislative Histories Library.
