One of our most frequent requests from patrons is for assistance with their constitutional research, particularly with regard to state constitutions. While the best resource for information is likely the state library and/or state archives of the state that created the constitution of interest, we are happy to assist. This guide will help you find more information about researching both current and historic state constitutions.
