The Constitution: Now There's an App for That

The Senate Committee on Rules and Administration, the Library of Congress, and the Government Printing Office celebrated Constitution Day today by launching a new app and web publication that bring analysis and interpretation ofconstitutional case law by LOC experts to your computer or mobile device--free.

CONAN-512-w-bug1 (2)

The app is based on 100-year-old The Constitution of the United States of America: Analysis and Interpretation (or the Constitution Annotated), a bound and regularly updated publication with analysis of constitutional cases by the Congressional Research Service in the LOC.  

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.  A direct link is here.

The Constitution Annotated web publication will be available on GPO's Federal Digital System (FDsys) as a digitally-signed, searchable PDF that includes a linked table of contents, a linked table of cases, a linked index and GPO’s Seal of Authenticity on every page.

The new Constitution Annotated and a suite of constitutional resources can be viewed here.  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.
