Happy Constitution Day!
Our GovDocs Department went out to Wooten Hall this morning, home of PoliSci majors, to hand out pocket constitutions. We had close to 300 constitutions at 8:30 this morning.
By 9am, we were nearly out.
That certainly beat our projected goal of handing out 300 by 10:30! I guess we'll have to buy more next year.
We printed labels with our department name, URL, and phone number, and placed them on the front of the Constitutions in the hopes that it sparks more traffic at our public service desk.
We've also got a lovely constitution-themed display on the first floor of Willis Library, where we stashed a few more constitutions.
For more Constitution Day fun and learning, check out NARA's Charters of Freedom Exhibit. It's got high-quality images and text transcripts of the Constitution and other founding documents.
