HeinOnline's COVID-19 in America: Response, Issues, and Law database has been revamped to include a new Past Pandemics subcollection available through ORU's subscription to HeinOnline

In August, HeinOnline released COVID-19 in America: Response, Issues, and Law free to all Core subscription packages, empowering users with factual information about the COVID-19 pandemic and its global effects.

With the recent addition of more than 530 titles and nearly 50,000 pages, a major expansion has been made to the database. Users will now find a new Past Pandemics subcollection added to their subscription, bringing together a multitude of government documents and reports from recent public health history that evaluate the current situation within the context of other past global health crises.
