The University Library holdings include the Congressional Record, FRUS, and Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States (public statements, speeches, etc.). FRUS, in particular, is easy to use. The declassified documents extend into the 1970s. While the materials are only a fraction of what a researcher will find in the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, they are sufficient for an M. A. student to understand the internal debates within the U. S. government over the making of foreign policy. Each volume is devoted to a particular geographic region.
