Declassified Documents Reference System - US (DDRS)

Campus access only
Dates: 
Post-World War II through 1970's
Description:

DDRS, a database of Primary Source Media, contains electronic copies of declassified documents from the U.S. presidential libraries. The libraries receive declassified documents from various government agencies: the White House, the CIA, the FBI, the State Department and others. As researchers have visited the presidential libraries and requested documents, the libraries have copied them and sent them to Primary Source Media for filming, scanning and indexing. The result is a collection of more than 75,000 documents--465,000 pages--that has literally been built by researchers themselves for nearly two decades. Nearly every major foreign and domestic event of these years is covered: the Cold War, Vietnam, foreign policy shifts, the civil rights movement, and others. Not all documents are clearly or completely legible, but both the page images of documents and scanned text are available.
