Two additional Hein Online databases were recently added to the UW Law Library's list of electronic holdings. These subscriptions offer pdf format and remote access with your UW Net ID.
Hein's newest specialized library, the Intellectual Property Law Collection, focuses on copyrights, patents and trademarks in the United States. It includes nearly two million pages of legislative histories, books and relevant documents. In addition, pertinent sections of the U.S. Code, Title 37 of the CFR, and fifty periodical titles regarding IP can be searched in one handy database.
The United States Federal Agency Library, another Hein product, provides access to the official documents and judicial opinions of some of the United States' most important government offices. Notable titles in this library include Decisions of the National Labor Relations Board, the Federal Communications Commission Record, and the Internal Revenue Cumulative Bulletin. This database complements the government documents collection held by UW Madison campus libraries.
From time to time the Law Library receives trial subscriptions of new Hein database products. These titles are flagged in red on the welcome screen to the Hein website. If you are currently researching Tax and Economic Reform or the History of Bankruptcy the trial service is available until the end of February.
