What a tumultuous year 2016 turned out to be! Brexit and the election of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States surprised the world; many entertainment icons passed away, including actor Gene Wilder, actress Florence Henderson, singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, legendary musician and performer Prince, and psychic Miss Cleo, among many others.

With the August content release, another title was completed back to inception: Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications. Coverage of this title includes 1895-2004.
Monthly Catalog of United States Government Publications was established by the Printing Act of January 12, 1895. This publication was issued monthly by the Superintendent of Documents for the Government Printing Office,
Back in July, an analysis was released on the HeinOnline blog which compared the depth of HeinOnline's journal content with five other legal research databases. Shortly after the post was published, a customer emailed to ask if a comparison was available between HeinOnline and the EBSCO Index to Legal Periodicals (H.W. Wilson). This database was not included in the original comparison, so the same process was used to compare its content with that of HeinOnline.
It's official: University of North Carolina Press legal titles have been added to all U.S. Core subscriptions free of charge! Access the new titles in the UNC Press Law Publications collection from the HeinOnline Welcome page:

In 2015, HeinOnline partnered with the American Bar Association (ABA) to offer access to the current content of 100 ABA-published journals.

Both HeinOnline and the ABA are committed to continually increasing the value of this collection.

One of the most commonly asked questions addressed to the HeinOnline support team is "What does HeinOnline have compared to other legal research databases?" Until recently, no known sources contained information about what each database has in terms of depth of content and coverage. Thus, this analysis was performed on database content for the top 100 law journals for six major legal research databases: HeinOnline, Westlaw*, LexisNexis Academic, JSTOR, Gale LegalTrac, and EBSCO Legal Collection. The results of the study are discussed in detail below.
