ConSource has a New Home

Welcome to ConSource
The Constitutional Sources Project (ConSource) connects hundreds of thousands of American citizens of all ages annually to our rich constitutional history by creating a comprehensive, easily searchable, fully-indexed, and freely accessible digital library of historical sources related to the creation, ratification, and amendment of the United States Constitution. Our digital collections are supported by cutting-edge research led by the Quill Project at Oxford University and are enhanced with resources designed to meet the needs of scholars and legal practitioners, educators and students, journalists and the general public.
