What the !#%$ is HeinOnline’s Civil Rights and Social Justice database?
To celebrate Black History Month, this week’s What the !#%$ Wednesday highlights Civil Rights and Social Justice, a collection on HeinOnline that contains materials that show how civil rights have been strengthened and expanded over time, as well as how these legal protections can go further still.
This collection provides a platform for users to research civil rights and social justice material including (but not limited to!):
- Scholarly articles
- Hearings and committee prints
- Legislative histories on landmark legislation
- CRS and GAO reports
- Briefs from major Supreme Court cases
- Publications from the Commission on Civil Rights
For help navigating this database, HeinOnline has created a LibGuide with search tips and tricks. They have also curated a lot of other resources on the topic.
You can also reach out to your friendly reference librarians for help, too! They are available for appointments (or questions) in person or via phone (651-290-6424), chat, Zoom, or email.
