Good news from HeinOnline

HeinOnline announced several items of good news recently. The one that gives us the most joy is that they "are excited to announce that William S. Hein & Co., Inc. has acquired the rights to the University of Washington Gallagher Law Library's Current Index to Legal Periodicals (CILP). Although this publication was recently suspended in Fall 2019, we are actively working on reinstating the product. We expect to have access to new material available within the upcoming weeks, and we will continue to publish new content on the previous schedule of most Fridays of the year. HeinOnline will continue to include all features and benefits CILP previously offered, and is additionally seeking new ways to improve the product." We have missed CILP and are looking forward to the continuation of this valuable resource.
