The Leatherby Libraries is pleased to offer access to U.S. Declassified Documents Online. This database includes previously classified federal records from every presidential library and many executive agencies spanning the 20th and 21st centuries. It includes intelligence studies, policy papers, diplomatic correspondence, cabinet meeting minutes, briefing materials, and domestic surveillance and military reports. It covers nearly every significant foreign policy development and sensitive domestic issues, such as the civil rights and anti-war movements, domestic surveillance, abuse of government power, and homegrown terrorism.

According to Choice Reviews Online*, “The collection—appropriate for all levels of study—will appeal to scholars in many fields of study, including political science, history, law, regional studies, environmental studies, business, social science, and journalism.”
