ProQuest Expands Digital National Security Archive

Five new collections have been added to ProQuest's Digital National Security Archive (DNSA) Web-based resource. The National Security Archive, a non-profit group based in Washington, D.C., and ProQuest Information and Learning have once more teamed to expand "the most comprehensive collection available of significant primary documents central to U.S. foreign policy since 1945."

Together with the 15 collections already included in DNSA, the new collections comprise a research and teaching tool for the study of U.S. foreign policy, intelligence, and security issues during the 20th century. Most of the documents are published for the first time. The new documents reveal new details of U.S.-China relations, El Salvador, nuclear development, and more.

The declassified documents that make up the growing database have been gathered through extensive use of the U.S. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). New topical collections will be added annually. Documents are targeted by skilled researchers with context provided by glossaries, bibliographies, chronologies, and essays prepared by foreign policy experts.

Users may access essential primary documents with detailed authority-controlled indexing. They may search at item or page level across more than 20 combinable fields. Full page images offer views of the primary source. A names database allows search for all references, even if the name is incomplete or misspelled in the document. DNSA is available by subscription or by permanent access. Free trials are available.
