FBI Records: The Vault: What Is It?

This is the first in a four-part series featuring the FBI records Vault. Each part will highlight a different feature of the site.

The Vault is the FBI’s new Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Library, containing 6,700 documents and other media that have been scanned from paper into digital copies so you can read them in the comfort of your home or office.

Below is a view of the Homepage.

The Vault includes new FBI files that have been released to the public but never added to their website; dozens of records previously posted on the site but removed as requests diminished; files from their previous FOIA Library, and new, previously unreleased files.

The Vault includes several new tools and resources for your convenience, such as topic search, index, and Updates Requests. All easily accessible through the menu on the right side of the page.
