The Constitution Outside the Courts: The Library of Congress
Sep 20th, 2013
“In a mobile app and in a digitized online version, “The Constitution of the United States: Analysis and Interpretation” is a constitutional library all of its own”
“Many Americans, not just the courts, help shape the meaning of the Constitution in the nation’s life. This series explains the actual or potential contributions of these other individuals, groups, or institutions. Today’s Constitution-maker is the Library of Congress, America’s oldest federal cultural institution.
Marking Constitution Day this week, the Library together with the U.S. Government Printing Office released new telephone and Internet access versions of its venerable publication popularly known as “Constitution Annotated,” published and updated for a century now. The Internet version – all 2,830 pages – can be downloaded, read and searched here (PDF).
The mobile “app” can be downloaded for free from iTunes here: http://beta.congress.gov/constitution-annotated/
