Historical Newspapers Available OnlineThe Law Library provides access to ProQuest Historical Newspapers: The Wall Street Journal (from its first issue in 1889 through 1995), The Washington Post (1877 - 1997), The New York Times (1980 - current), The Baltimore Afro-American (1893 - 1988) and the Baltimore Sun (1837 - present).
It is searchable by keyword, author, article title, and first paragraph (abstract). It includes PDF images of all editorials, illustrations and advertisements, anything that appeared in the original edition.
ABA Publications in HeinOnlineThis new HeinOnline collection, developed in partnership with the American Bar Association, provides digital access to the ABA Law Library Collection Periodicals (formerly the ABA Package Plan.) Access is provided to current issues as well as back files of the more than 100 ABA-published periodicals, including forty-four titles previously available only to members.
Some of the forty-four publications now included that were previously available only to ABA members are: Access to Justice; Alternative Dispute Resolution; Environmental Litigation; Health Law Litigation; SciTech Lawyer; and Minority Trial Lawyer. A full list is available here.
Some of the current materials are available as full color PDFs.
If you have a MyHein account, you can set up research alerts to follow specific authors, titles, or key terms. Hein will alert you when content that fits your search request is added to the collection. Please contact your librarian liaison if you would like to set up a MyHein account and/or an alert for the ABA Periodicals collection.
