Updates & Changes Coming to Your Declassified Documents Resource in July 2016

Posted on May 12, 2016

Announcing the new U.S. Declassified Documents Online!

As a purchaser of Declassified Documents Reference System, your library knows the value of offering this behind-the-scenes information from the U.S. government’s executive branch. The content is incomparable to anything else available; you tell us that all the time.
But the interface…

An updated experience has been added to your resource. When beginning a session in Declassified Documents Reference System, users will see a banner at the top of the screen allowing them to try a new experience—U.S. Declassified Documents Online.


U.S. Declassified Documents Online offers improved search functionality and research tools that your students and faculty have come to expect from Gale, including:

  • Cross-search with your other Gale Primary Source collections
  • Filter search results by declassified date, classification level, publication year, and more
  • Analyze results using built-in Term Frequency and Term Clusters tools
  • Create and add metadata with user-generated tags and annotations
