Constitution Week: Free copies, streaming videos and a little 'Schoolhouse Rock'
In celebration of Constitution Day Sept. 17, VCU Libraries recommends viewing "History of the Constitution," a DVD collection in 47 short segments, totaling two hours. Take a break and study our fundamental governance document in bits and pieces. As with all of the libraries collection of streaming videos, VCU eID patrons can watch anytime, anywhere with an Internet connection, headphones or speakers.
Throughout the week, VCU Libraries will feature a presentation and video montage on the large-screen monitors inside the entrances of James Branch Cabell Library and Tompkins-McCaw Library for the Health Sciences. Catch trivia and fun facts as you visit the library. The video montage features clips from the "Schoolhouse Rock" Preamble to a segment of Barbara Jordan's famous 1974 "Constitution Speech."
Also, Sept. 12-18, stop by the main desks at the libraries and request a free pocket-sized copy of the Constitution--in English or Spanish.
