The Constitution Day and Citizenship Day display was assembled to showcase the many resources the library has to offer regarding the civics and citizenship, understanding and interpreting the constitution and its amendments. Constitution Day and Citizenship Day are celebrated on September 17 annually.
The display includes government documents, books, and DVDs. The library guide found at http://libresources.wichita.edu/gov/ConstitutionDay also includes streaming videos and additional content. This exhibit will be on display from September 14 to October 5, 2017.
WSU Libraries has access to many video resources. If you are a student or employee of WSU you may use our video streaming services through Films on Demand, Alexander Street Press, and Swank. You may also check out DVDs from the Ablah Reserve Stacks or SGA movie collection on the first floor.
