Criminal Procedure: Secondary Sources

Overview of Secondary Sources

Secondary resources take various forms, they can be jurisdictionally specific or they can provide the reader with a compilation of laws encompassing various jurisdictions. They can provide information about a broad subject or they can restrict discussion to a very narrow topic—meant only for an esoteric audience. The user must decide the purpose for which he or she is consulting the secondary research, along with the level of knowledge he or she possesses regarding the given topic. Below, the user can find the type of resource that best conforms to his or her particular needs.

HeinOnline Resources

HeinOnline is a useful tool for finding archived material, especially material dating back to the 19th century. HeinOnline is also good for users who are seeking out international resources or law review journals. The law review journals are, however, only available in PDF format, as are all other sources procured through HeinOnline. 


    HeinOnline is accessible via IP recognition while on-campus; When off-campus, users MUST login via Regent's Law Library site.
