Digital National Security Archives

The Digital National Security Archive (DNSA) offers access to primary documents from the National Security Archive.  DNSA is the most comprehensive collection available of significant primary documents central to US foreign and military policy since 1945. Over 69,000 of the most important, declassified documents - totaling more than 488,000 pages - are included in the database. Many are published now for the first time.

DNSA is comprised of 30 collections, each focused on a single topic and containing a diverse range of policy documents including presidential directives, memos, diplomatic dispatches, meeting notes, independent reports, briefing papers, White House communications, email, confidential letters and other secret material. Additionally, contextual and reference supplements are provided for each collection, including general introductory material, a chronology, glossary and bibliography.

Documents have been selected and identified by leading scholars in each of the topic areas covered and have been indexed to permit item and page-level searching across more than 20 combinable fields.

Policy File

PolicyFile is the leading source for finding information on U.S. public policy issues via the Web with content from 1990 to present. Both domestic and foreign policy gray literature is thoroughly indexed with links to full-text documents not easily found on the Web.   PolicyFile provides comprehensive, non-partisan access to today's critical policy issues, including military and security policies, international trade and business, economics, health, education, immigration, and other policy subjects.
PolicyFile is updated weekly with additions of approximately 250 records per week. Currently, users may access over 91,000 records from 1995 to current, most of these with links to the full-text documents. This resource for difficult-to-find gray literature covers all foreign and domestic policy papers produced by an impressive and growing number of nongovernmental agencies, research institutes, and think tanks in the U.S.
The 386 organizations included in PolicyFile are reviewed daily to gather the most recently published papers, reports, and documents for inclusion. All records have subject indexing and abstracts, and the vast majority of PolicyFile records include links to the full-text documents. Efforts have been made to include a variety of viewpoints and perspectives to all issues.
PolicyFile is a non-partisan resource that collects information from a wide range of organizations including: the American Enterprise Institute, Brookings Institution, Cato Institute, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Economic Strategy Institute, Heritage Foundation, Institute for International Economics, International Monetary Fund, Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, RAND Corporation, and The World Bank. Abstracts are provided on everything from health care reform to trade with Asia; from environmental regulation to telecommunications reform; from security in the former nation of Russia to the Mexican peso stability. Includes links to full text of articles and documents. Nearly 50% of the records contain full-text links.
