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
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.
