September 23, 2013 Leave a comment
In honor of Constitution Day (Sept. 17), the Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, the Library of Congress and the Government Printing Office (GPO) introduced a new app and web publication that make analysis and interpretation of constitutional case law by Library experts accessible for free to anyone with a computer or mobile device.
The new Constitution Annotated app is available for the iOS platform and allows users to read the entire document; browse by section – such as by article of or amendment to the Constitution; view and navigate content from a table of cases and index; and search all text. The app can be downloaded for free from iTunes. An Android version is under development.
The new Constitution Annotated and a suite of constitutional resources can be viewed at beta.congress.gov/constitution-annotated. The page features links to the app stores, an interactive table listing recent cases of high interest, a bibliography of Constitution-related primary documents in American history and tips for searching the Constitution Annotated on GPO’s website at gpo.gov/constitutionannotated.
