The House Explained

Also referred to as a congressman or congresswoman, each representative is elected to a two-year term serving the people of a specific congressional district. Among other duties, representatives introduce bills and resolutions, offer amendments and serve on committees. The number of representatives with full voting rights is 435, a number set by Public Law 62-5 on August 8, 1911, and in effect since 1913. The number of representatives per state is proportionate to population. Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution provides for both the minimum and maximum sizes for the House of Representatives.

To be elected, a representative must be at least 25 years old, a United States citizen for at least seven years and an inhabitant of the state he or she represents.

Community: A New Name for "Open Source" Collections

We have chosen to replace the term “Open Source” with “Community,” because we feel it better reflects the purpose of these collections and the people who donated the content. Open Source typically refers to free access to source code and open distribution. Wikipedia has a detailed definition of the term at Please be assured that none of the URLs for collections or items have changed – if you have links to our site for any content, those links will continue to work. We hope you agree that this change better reflects their purpose. -Jeff Kaplan. Good reads. International Journal of Food Studies.
