A new U.S. ambassador was sworn in on Monday, but her ceremony was a little different. She took her oath on a copy of the U.S. Constitution, as usual, but this copy was stored on an e-reader.

Suzi LeVine, the American representative to Switzerland, was sworn in over a Kindle Touch, according to The Washington Post. She’s the first ambassador to take the oath on an e-reader.

But others have been sworn in using e-readers or other digital devices.

New Jersey firefighters were sworn in on an iPad in February because nobody brought a print copy of the Bible, according to NBC40. And, according to Newsday, a Long Island official was sworn in on an iPad Bible also because nobody could find a print copy.
