Digital National Security Archive unlocks a vast trove of important declassified U.S. government documents, providing vital primary source material to advance research in twentieth and twenty-first century history, politics, and international relations.
Working in collaboration with the National Security Archive to preserve and widen access to this significant material, ProQuest has created a far-reaching, curated collection of U.S. official documents. More than 875,000 pages and approximately 140,000 documents respectively are included, with many gathered through extensive use of the U.S. Freedom of Information Act by The Archive.
The digitized documents are made available in over 56 topic-based collections, with two new collections added each year. The curation of each collection is overseen by subject-area scholars to ensure the material provides the most discerning coverage of the topic.
Researchers can directly access the original documents that shaped responses to crucial issues from post-World War II to the present.
Through its effective search engine, DNSA allows users to unlock the hidden relationships revealed by these documents across subject areas and time periods, providing a new perspective on global issues.
Online access saves travel time and costs of sourcing and gathering dispersed documents.
Curated by scholars at The Archive, the resource provides the most complete version, available at the time, of each document, catalogued and indexed by librarians to ensure a rich and rewarding discovery experience.
