April means springtime for many areas of the United States, the start of the regular baseball season, and the tax filing deadline for millions of Americans. The history of taxation in America began before the American Revolution, when colonists protested British taxation policies in the 1760s, and it continues to be a frequently discussed and controversial topic today.

HeinOnline's Taxation & Economic Reform in America Parts I & II (TERA) collection contains millions of pages and thousands of volumes of legislative history and other documents pertaining to taxation and the economy in the United States. The collection also contains extensive content pertaining to securities, banking, finance, and investment. 


In addition to featuring Taxation & Economic Reform in America Parts I & II this month, we thought we would celebrate a much-anticipated spring by adding History of Bankruptcy (TERA Part III) as a second featured collection for April.

This collection focuses on bankruptcy in the United States, and contains an extensive collection of compiled legislative histories and books pertaining to this pervasive problem which affects millions of Americans each year. According to, these are the top 5 reasons people in America go bankrupt.



"Without libraries, what have we? We have no past and no future." -Ray Bradbury

As a corporate blogger, I have learned to be politically neutral, succinctly informative, and unfailingly professional. If I have feelings on a particular blog topic, it is my duty to ensure that my emotions are not reflected in the words I write for for our readership and on behalf of the company I represent. Today, I am gleefully hurling this philosophy of dispassion out a 10-story window, because I absolutely cannot hold back my enthusiasm about the subject of today's blog: LIBRARIES.


For those following this year's election, the phrase "super PAC" is probably familiar, but even if you're trying to tune out the 2016 presidential race entirely, you might be interested to learn how super PACs can affect an election.

PAC stands for political action committee, and super PACs are allowed to raise unlimited sums of money from corporations, unions, and individuals and then spend that money to openly advocate for or against a political candidate. Unlike traditional PACs, however, super PACs are prohibited from donating money directly to political candidates, and their spending must not be coordinated with that of the candidates they benefit, according Both traditional and super PACs advocate for or against a candidate by purchasing television, radio, and print advertisements.


In response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Congress rushed to pass legislation to alleviate the fears and concerns felt by Americans, and to strengthen national security. The result was the USA Patriot Act, or the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001, signed by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2001. The Patriot Act impacted several existing acts available in HeinOnline's U.S. Statutes at Large library, including:


It's 10 a.m. on the Monday your legal brief is due. You've been up since yesterday, and coffee is the only thing keeping your eyes open. You need to check all of your citations to make sure they're correct, and just realized you need to retrieve several Federal Register documents that you thought you printed in the library, but they've gone missing.

It's 4 p.m. on Friday, and you're looking forward to an evening with your long-lost friends, when your boss calls. She needs you to find the official version of several Supreme Court cases, and she needs them NOW.
