As the world grapples with COVID-19, HeinOnline has launched COVID-19: Pandemics Past and Present to spread information. Compiling together publications on the various ways COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of life, from testing issues, to stimulus payments, to the quest for a vaccine, this database organizes content on COVID-19 into the following areas of focus: Economic Impact, Global Impact, Health Care Impact, and Societal Impact, with an expanding selection of scholarly articles and links to take your learning beyond HeinOnline.
Importantly, this collection also features a subcollection dedicated to Past Pandemics, allowing researchers access to ways the federal government has responded to medical disasters of the past and how these previous pandemics inform today’s response. In addition, to further advance your research on both COVID-19 vaccinations and inoculation in general, we’ve recently added a new subcollection on the History of Vaccinations, that consists of more than 250 titles. In fact, we have created six new subjects to coincide with this subcollection: Hepatitis, Polio, Anthrax, Vaccine Injury, Smallpox, and Measles. Notable documents include titles on vaccine mandates, particularly in the military, as well as a series of CRS Reports from the 2000s titled “Mandatory Vaccinations: Precedent and Current Laws.”
This database, much like our understanding of COVID-19, will continue to evolve as new content is published and integrated with regular updates.
