Global Perspectives from the CIA Archives
- Six digital resources support learning and research across STEM and humanities disciplines
- Comprised of unique primary source documents from around the world
- Chronicles the history of today’s most important scientific and technological fields
Support learning and research across STEM and humanities disciplines with this new family of fully searchable digital collections. Each collection is comprised of thousands of primary source documents from around the world, collected and translated into English by the Central Intelligence Agency between 1957 and 1995. Researchers will find journal articles, government publications, newspapers, magazines, and transcribed television and radio broadcasts that shed new light on the origins of some of today’s most relevant scientific fields. Many of these materials are unavailable elsewhere.
Each collection is available individually, giving libraries the opportunity to tailor their research collections to the current needs of students and scholars. In addition, the interface enables researchers to easily browse the collections by a broad range of topics, each providing highly relevant results for users at all levels.
