CIA, still going strong with no strong of retiring at 60

In a tiny little story today on NPR (see or listen to the paragraph here) I learned the CIA has turned 60. For more on this birthday, check out the press release from the CIA. So in honor of this big birthday, I thought I would highlight some of the resources from and about the CIA.

First, let's take a look at their online library. From here you can link to resources, such as the World Factbook, CIA Maps, and the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Reading Room. The World Factbook provides you with information on foreign countries, their governments and the people that live there. The FOIA room provides links to selected declassified resources from the CIA.

Speaking of declassified materials, if you are on campus why not check out one of the two databases with information on declassified materials: Declassified Documents Reference Service and the Digital National Security Library. For those of you not on campus check out the Freedom of Information Act and Declassified Documents guides.
