Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports 1941 – 1996 (trial only)

This trial has now ended. For further information please add to comments or email

The Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Report has been the United States’ principal record of political and historical open source intelligence for nearly 70 years. Available in a single, complete online collection, FBIS Daily Reports,1941-1996 constitutes a one-of-a-kind archive of transcripts of foreign broadcasts and news that provides fascinating insight into the second half of the 20th century.
It also covers 8 geographic regions from 1974-1996. The 1974-1996 regions are all complete. However, the 1941-1974 global file is still in development and to date, only about 50% of the total content from 1941-1974 has been uploaded. Readex expects the 1941-1974 global file to be completed by the end of this year.

    I am so glad you have this database on trial and urge you to purchase access to this on an ongoing basis. I use the reports to scan through Indonesian press reporting, in particular right now between 1965-1968 to monitor the violent regime change which occurred from Sukarno to Suharto. The trial period of this database is so short, that I really urge the library to get this database on an ongoing basis, so I can explore more of this great database.
