In June 2020, the Law Library added the following new resources to the collection to support the research and curricular needs of our faculty and students.
AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE (AEI) – Our newest HeinOnline resource is the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). The AEI was founded in 1938 for the purpose of “bringing about a greater public knowledge and understanding of the social and economic advantages accruing to the American people through the maintenance of the system of free, competitive enterprise.” A public policy think tank based in Washington, D.C., AEI scholars conduct original research that advocates for free enterprise and focuses on the world economy, U.S. foreign policy and international security, and domestic political and social issues. The American Enterprise Institute database brings AEI’s collection of scholarship to HeinOnline, providing access to works published by the Institute in HeinOnline’s fully-searchable image-based format. Unique to this collection is the ability to search by Policy Area.
