A new database has been added to the Law Library's HeinOnline subscription: COVID-19 in America: Response, Issues, and Law

According to Hein, this database will allow users to:

  • Find factual information about how COVID-19 has impacted public health, economics, society, and the world
  • Peruse hundreds of Congressional Research Service (CRS) and Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports,updated regularly as the situation evolves
  • Discover a curated list of relevant scholarly articles and external links to supplement their research

INTRODUCING COVID-19 IN AMERICA: RESPONSE, ISSUES, AND LAW

While we may not know what the next months will bring, HeinOnline has launched the COVID-19 in America database in the hopes of making factual, authoritative information accessible to its customers in the meantime.

For ease of access, content in this database has been grouped around the areas of life in America impacted by the disease: Economics, Health, and Society. An additional subcollection entitled Global Impact has been dedicated to analyses of the pandemic's effect on the rest of the world.

In these subcollections, publications from the Congressional Research Service (CRS) and Government Accountability Office (GAO) analyze the various ways COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of life, from testing issues in the medical field to unemployment and economic impact.

These reports provide insight into federal response to the pandemic, discussing not only those issues that are highly prevalent in the media (for example, the process of vaccine development), but also those that may not have been previously considered by the casual researcher—for example, the pandemic's effect on organ donation and transplantation, support for the homeless, and more.
