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 two of its products available through Congress.gov. First, CRS Reports, or the reports and research projects provided to Congress as part of CRS’s duty to provide timely, objective, and authoritative research and analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, are now available at https://crsreports.congress.gov/. Second, the Constitution of the United States of America: Analysis and Interpretation (Constitution Annotated), which provides a summary of U.S. Constitutional provisions and the leading U.S. Supreme Court decisions that interpret them, is now available at https://constitution.congress.gov/. This presentation will provide an overview of the features and navigation of CRS Reports and the Constitution Annotated available via Congress.gov.
