Where do I find the current status of a UN Treaty in HeinOnline?

Are you looking for the current status of the parties in a UN Treaty or want to see the entry into force date? In addition to providing you with key treaty data and a link to the text of the treaty as it appears in the UN Treaty Series, HeinOnline now links the most current status of the treaty as it is presented on the United Nations website at http://treaties.un.org.

There are two ways to find the current status of a treaty in HeinOnline. The first is by searching for the treaty. From HeinOnline’s United Nations Law Collection page, click on Search for a Treaty under the Finding Aids. Then, use the Treaty/Registration Number drop-down box under and enter the treaty number. For example, let’s search for 10586.
