Dear Dale Fukino,
The Library of Congress has published an extensive guide to the Constitution, available online here: https://guides.loc.gov/constitution The guide directs you not only to digital material, but also other institutions and repositories that provide details about the U.S. Constitution and its history.

Dear Mr. Fukino,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
In addition to the Library of Congress’s web page that they already recommended to you, The National Archives also has a page about The Constitution of the United States. Some of the linked pages include the article "A More Perfect Union", which is a look at the Constitutional Convention and the ratification process. Also on our website is the article “The Constitution: How Did it Happen?”. The National Archives and the National Archives Foundation also have a A Special Page Devoted to Teaching the U.S. Constitution on NARA’s DocsTeach website. Another resource is Founders Online, which includes searchable documents from George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams (and family), Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, and James Madison. In addition, you can work with your local librarians to locate some of the many books published on the topic.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!

In addition to the National Archives DocsTeach website, with teaching resources and primary sources related to the Constitution, you may also wish to explore the eBook "Exploring the United States Constitution" that connects historical records in the holdings of the National Archives to the principles found in the U.S. Constitution. Also, the ebook "Congress Creates the Bill of Rights" focuses on James Madison's leadership role in creating the Bill of Rights, effectively completing the U.S. Constitution.
Many great resources have already been recommended. One more I'd like to recommend is..
The Enduring Legacies of the Constitution with Jeffery Rosen and Kevin Butterfield which is discussion between two scholars from George Washington's Mount Vernon and the National Constitution Center.
