HeinOnline's Tip of the Week: How to Find a Treaty

HeinOnline's Weblog has developed another terrific
tutorial - this one on how to use the Treaty Metadata
Search function in the Treaties & Agreements Library
to locate a treaty and a summary of the key
treaty information.

The treaty summary information is very useful for quickly
identifying citation and background information, such as the State
Department number, former KAV number, country
involved, Treaties in Force subject, description, treaty it
was amended by, a list of treaties that extended the treaty,
and more.
