U.S. State Dept - Foreign Relations of the United States

Alderman Library is an Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) Center of Excellence for State Department documents.  All State Department publications are being inventoried and cataloged.  We are also trying to improve and expand this collection.

  • Foreign relations of the United States : diplomatic papers
    FRUS began in 1861 and consists of sensitive correspondence, other documents of the State Department, and other materials affecting the foreign relations of the U.S. Materials are not released for publication until 25 years after they were originally produced. Prior to 1861 similar materials were printed in the Annual Report of the Secretary of State which can be found in the Serial Set, and indexed in the Proquest Congressional database. See also digital versions of FRUS (follows).
  • Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS)
    Selected volumes of FRUS (1861-1958/1960) have been digitized by the University of Wisconsin.
  • U.S. State Department Digital FRUS Volumes
    A growing collection. Coverage of selected material extends through the Reagan administration.

Other Publications - Selected

  • American Memory Century of American Lawmaking
    Selected volumes from the Library of Congress (1817-1830s)
  • Department of State Bulletin
    Print volumes 1939-1989. This monthly periodical reprinted speeches of U.S. officials on important foreign policy matters. The speeches didn't have to be by State Department officials, but do always deal with foreign policy. Many of these speeches are also to be found in Current Policy (S 1.71/4:). this is a good place to see what U.S. policy towards a country or an event was.
  • US Department of State Dispatch
    1990-1999. Similar, but not as detailed, as Department of State Bulletin. "The United States Department of State Dispatch has provided key speeches and testimony by senior State Department officials as well as current U.S. treaty actions since 1990. However, since all speeches, briefings, and testimony from State Department officials and the current U.S. treaty actions are available on the web site at upon release, hard copy distribution of this publication will end with the December 1999 issue and Index."
  • American state papers : documents, legislative and executive, of the Congress of the United States
    Also in microfiche and online at the Library of Congress.
