Voices of the Library: Spotlighting Librarians for National Library Week 2023
April 25, 2023 HeinOnline Blog

National Library Week is one of our favorite weeks here at HeinOnline. Hosted by the American Library Association, National Library Week 2023 is being celebrated April 23-29, with the theme “There’s More to the Story”—referring not only to the vast variety of stories held within libraries, but also to all of the perhaps not as well-known services and resources that libraries provide to the community. This year, we thought what better way to celebrate than to ask librarians themselves about what they do and what they love about their library?

A New Deal on Banking Reform
April 14, 2023 HeinOnline Blog

Silicon Valley Bank’s failure immediately brought to mind the 2008 financial crisis, both in pundit talking points and in the minds of ordinary citizens. Terms like “bank run” may have brought to mind a specific scene in It’s a Wonderful Life, and may have caused some to wonder: weren’t laws passed to prevent this exact scenario after the Great Depression?

Secrets of the Serial Set: The Mexican-American War
April 21, 2023 HeinOnline Blog

In the early 1800s, the United States was a lot smaller, and Mexico was a lot larger. But when America’s pursuit of Manifest Destiny collided with Mexican interest, all out war broke out, leading to the Mexican-American War. The conflict only lasted two years, but it would shape the future of both of these neighbor nations.

The Controversy Surrounding Laws Affecting the Transgender Community
April 11, 2023 HeinOnline Blog

From laws preventing mentions of gender identity or sexual orientation in classrooms, to proposals to ban gender-affirming care for youth, to even prohibiting drag shows, there are new laws cropping up designed to restrict rights for transgender people across the country. Historically, LGBTQ+ members of American society have been marginalized, and transgender individuals have faced decades of discrimination.

The History of Student Loan Debt in America
April 4, 2023 | HeinOnline Blog

It’s a topic that is brought up in the news weekly, if not daily: student loan debt. President Biden made cancelling student loan debt a major part of his presidential campaign, and he recently announced a plan to cancel a significant amount of debt—but it is being fought tooth and nail in Congress and the courts. Today, student loan debt adds up to more than $1.6 trillion. So how did we get here, with so many Americans drowning in debt?
