The Subject Compilations of State Laws database has revolutionized historical state subject searching as the most comprehensive source for identifying thousands of articles, books, government documents, looseleaf services, court opinions, and Internet sites that compare state laws across 3,500+ subjects. It offers users quick access to over 28,000 bibliographic records, many with extensive annotations. Notably, the annotations conveniently link to more than 14,000 articles and documents in HeinOnline, while others connect to case law or external websites. Additionally, users can access current and past volumes in the series and other related works linking to 800+ full-text documents within HeinOnline.
Furthermore, the database grants access to the State Law Index: An Index and Digest to the Legislation of the States of the United States Enacted During the Biennium, volumes 1-12 (1925-1948), published biennially by the Legislative Reference Service of the Library of Congress. This index aids in identifying session laws by subject enacted by states during the specified years, offering valuable research opportunities.
