With the success of the virtual poster displays created by the library typically aligning with national themes and celebrations, we decided to create a virtual poster display for Constitution Day. Our Constitution Day posters cover a variety of formats as well as subjects including the ideologies of U.S. founding fathers, women in the American Revolution, constitutional ratifications over time, and implications of constitutional law on minorities. As a Hispanic Serving Institution, we created a slide to highlight and celebrate the first Hispanic U.S. Supreme Court Justice, Sonia Sotomayor. The virtual posters are a new tool to promote library resources, including government documents, during Constitution Day. They provide a new avenue to engage our students and community members and can easily be printed and displayed in the library. By uploading the posters to our Institutional Repository (ScholarWorks) we have had the opportunity to reach a wider audience. We have seen downloads from several U.S. states as well as the following countries United Arab Emirates, Brazil, and Finland.
