The Digital National Security Archive provides access to primary documents relating to US foreign and military policy since 1945. These documents are from the National Security Archive, a non-profit research organization founded in 1985 by journalists and scholars to check rising government secrecy.
The database contains over 95,000 records -- more than 650,000 pages -- of original documents most of which were formerly classified and unavailable. Although the documents may be available in Presidential collections or other archives, this database allows you to cross-search across all documents by collection, subject or date or to search the full text by keywords.
Currently the database contains the following 41 collections:
- Latin America Collection Set – 9 collections
- Asia Collection Set – 9 collections
- Middle East Collection Set – 5 collections
- Human Rights Collection Set – 6 collections
- Intelligence and Policy Collection Set – 12 collections
- Cold War Collection Set – 7 collections
During this one month trial the entire collection can be accessed at https://trials.proquest.com/trials/trialSummary.action?view=subject&trialBean.token=IMUPK60J9OVT0M6QV444.
