op Secret: Declassified Documents and Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

Wednesday, May 4, 2016 - 2:00pm

 

Depository libraries provide access to a rich record of the U.S. Government's activities. But what about the memos, telegrams, reports, and other elusive documents that were intended for a very limited audience? This session focuses on some of the processes through which these documents become available to members of the public: declassification, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, and Mandatory Declassification Review (MDR). Participants will discover sources and strategies for finding declassified Government documents, as well as best practices for submitting FOIA and MDR requests.
