William S. Hein & Co., Inc., a distributor of legal periodicals, is pleased to make past issues of Law Library Journal available online as a new member benefit to all AALL members.

By accessing Hein's Web site Hein-On-Line, members can view LLJ articles dating back to its first issue in 1908. The Web site allows members to browse or search Law Library Journal by title, author, terms and official citation. Users can view issues as text only or in an image-based format, meaning that all the pages appear as they originally did in print. To access the Journal, simply go to the Members Only section of AALLNET at After successfully inputting your e-mail and password, click on the link "LLJ by Hein-On-Line."

"As a result of the incredible support for Hein-On-Line from many AALL member libraries, we wanted to thank those supporters and all of AALL by offering Law Library Journal to its members," said Kevin Marmion, president of Hein. "With the unique searching features and image-based format of Hein-On-Line, members can now search through more than 85 years of Law Library Journal, and know that the journal is forever preserved in its original format."

Recipient of the 2001 Best New Product Award from the American Association of Law Libraries, Hein-On-Line is an ever-expanding, comprehensive, image-based collection of legal periodicals. Unlike other periodical databases that supply post-1980 volumes, Hein-On-Line distinguishes itself by providing journals from its inception to its most current volumes. This provides easy access to some of the best law review articles ever written (including the famous article, "The Right to Privacy," by Samuel Warren and Louis Brandeis, which remains the most-cited law review article of all time). Currently, Hein-On-Line includes more than 150 journal titles available. By the end of 2001, more than 3.2 million pages and 225,000 complete articles will be available on the site.
