	32 years of the world's most important writings on space law 
have just become more easily accessible. Today, volumes 1 through 31 
of the <http://www.spacelaw.olemiss.edu/index2.html>Journal of Space 
Law, spanning from 1973-2005, was added to the HeinOnline Library.
	The Journal had a number of on-line companies from which to 
choose. It chose HeinOnline, first and foremost, because its contents 
are more widely available to libraries around the world. Its 
subscription rates make Hein Online contents more accessible to 
libraries with modest budgets. Over the years, we have received 
comments from lawyers and students alike saying they could often 
access a HeinOnline account when they could not access some of Hein's 
larger, more expensive, competitors. Now, like the 
<http://library.law.olemiss.edu/OnlineDatabases>University of 
Mississippi School of Law Library, any library with a Hein 
subscription can make the Journal accessible.
             After speaking to a number of law librarians, the Journal 
also learned that many of them prefer the Hein format that provides 
an image of each original page, in its original full-page format. 
This preserves the original page as an historical and legal record 
and also facilitates more accurate citations.
             The <http://www.spacelaw.olemiss.edu/>National Center for 
Remote Sensing, Air, and Space Law is now engaged in a project that 
will create a searchable, cumulative index for all of the volumes, 
back to 1973. When completed, the index will be available on the 
Center's website. In the meantime, searching on HeinOnline can be 
done by title or author name, as well as full-text searching of the 
collection or select periodicals.
	Today, the intellectual heritage of some of the most 
important legal thinkers in space law, including the Journal's 
founder the late Dr. Stephen Gorove, is more available to the world 
than it has ever been and for a very long time to come.
