Free Public Access to Federal Materials


From the Law Library of Congress Blog:

Through an agreement with the Library of Congress, the publisher William S. Hein & Co., Inc. has generously allowed the Law Library of Congress to offer free online access to historical U.S. legal materials from HeinOnline.  These titles are available through the Library’s web portal, Guide to Law Online: U.S. Federal, and include:

Researchers can download PDF files of up to 20 pages per download. When you are viewing the document you need, look for the PDF icon at the top of the page to select the items for either printing or downloading.  In the example below from the Code of Federal Regulations (C.F.R.), you would click on the PDF icon at the top of the page and a “Print/Download Options” screen appears allowing you to select either the current section you are viewing or a custom page range. You can either print the pages or download them as a searchable PDF document.
