Next month, the Law Library of Congress will present two webinars. The first will be an introduction to the Constitution Annotated, which surveys and expounds how the Supreme Court of the United States has interpreted every provision of the Constitution throughout the nation’s history. The second will be an orientation to the collections of the Law Library. More information about the content of both webinars and registration links can be found below.
The Constitution Annotated on Congress.gov
Date: Thursday, July 15, 11:00 AM EDT – 12:00 PM EDT
Content: The Congressional Research Service (CRS) has provided expert, non-partisan analysis of legal and policy issues for Congress for over a century. Now, in an attempt to expand access to its resources, it has made one of its products available through Congress.gov—the Constitution of the United States of America: Analysis and Interpretation (Constitution Annotated). The Constitution Annotated, which provides a summary of U.S. Constitutional provisions and the leading U.S. Supreme Court decisions that interpret them, is available online. This presentation will provide an overview of the features and navigation of the Constitution Annotated available via Congress.gov.
Instructor: Barbara Bavis – bibliographic and research instruction librarian.
