Secret Gov't Papers, at the Libraries!
Declassified Documents Reference System

The Libraries newest online resource looks at the documents the Federal Government didn't want Joe Q. Public to see ... for awhile.

The Declassified Documents Reference System is a full-text database of previously classified documents declassified by the federal government. It includes material on both domestic and international affairs from such agencies as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, and the National Security Agency. Currently the database contains approximately 80,000 documents. Documents included in the database range from 1941 through approximately 1998.

Users can access the Declassified Documents Reference System from the frontpage of the Rutgers University Libraries website, either through Library Catalog or on the Indexes and Databases Web pages, under the Alphabetical listing.
