From Secrecy News:

  • “The Library of Congress has recently acquired a new database of declassified documents that is available to members of the public who use the Library in Washington, DC, though it cannot be remotely accessed. The Declassified Documents Reference System, which was purchased from The Gale Group, “provides full-text access to over 500,000 pages of previously classified government documents.”
  • Covering major post-World War II era international events from the Cold War to the Vietnam War and beyond, this source enables users to locate a selection of U.S. government documents from the Central Intelligence Agency, the State Department, the Department of Defense, the National Security Council, the White House, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as many other government agencies. The documents range in size and scope from telegrams, correspondence, and unevaluated field reports, to lengthy background studies and detailed minutes of cabinet-level meetings.”
