The Cold War Global Perspectives - trial

The Library is currently trialling a collection of material from the CIA:

The Cold War: Global Perspectives on East-West Tensions, 1945-1991

The content comes from the CIA's Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) which selected, transcribed and translated foreign-language broadcast and print news items as part of its intelligence gathering operations.  FBIS analysts curated sources from around the world, with a particular focus on the news outlets located in the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, China, North Korea, Vietnam and other hotspots.  

The content that we are trially is a subset of the full FBIS service, with a focus on the Cold War.

You can access this trial from on and off campus until the 20th April, here

Please do let the Library know what you think of these additional resources.

  • what teaching or research would this support?
