National Security Archive Collections

Guide to Government Publications Series


The National Security Archive collections include full text documents on microfiche as made available by the non-governmental, non-profit institution, the National Security Archive in Washington D.C. The publications include the documents secured by the organization through the Freedom of Information Act and the organizationšs own indexes and guides to the documents.

The National Security Archive was founded in 1985 by a group of journalists and scholars who had obtained classified federal government documents through the Freedom of Information Act and wanted to make them available to the public. The records in the collections include government reports, donated record holdings and oral histories, congressional reports and testimony, official court records, and records of the presidential libraries

The publisher, Chadwyck-Healey, provides full text access through its Internet site Digital National Security Archive .

The Stanford libraries continue to acquire the collections as the information is released. The printed guides are housed in the Social Sciences Resource Center in the Green Library and the microfiche (GRN-MTXT) is housed in the Green Library Media Microtext Room. The cdrom, National Security Archive Index, is housed in the Green Library Information Center. The titles located in the Hoover Institution Library must be requested at the reference desk in that library. Access to the Digital National Security Archive is available through library computer terminals.
