Declassified Documents Reference System (Gale) DDRS

Description July 7, 2016: Now called U.S. Declassified Documents Online
Old platform available until July 7, 2016

Government documents constitute a significant resource for researchers in almost every discipline. Limitations on the access to this information, severely restricts our understanding of the development of domestic and foreign policies. Now, Galeā„¢ makes it possible for researchers to easily and quickly access and review selected previously classified government documents online through the Declassified Documents Reference System (DDRS). DDRS fills an important gap in post-World War II domestic and foreign policy studies and provides unique opportunities for undergraduate and graduate comprehensive research in a rich primary source. In addition, DDRS provides basic research for journalism, public policy studies, international law and security, and other disciplines.
