UCL now has access to Joint Publications Research Service (JPRS) Reports, 1957-1995
Joint Publications Research Service (JPRS) Reports, 1957-1995: This archive of publications produced by the Joint Publications Research Service (JPRS), a unit operating within the United States CIA, features English translations of foreign-language monographs, reports, serials, journal and newspaper articles, and radio and television broadcasts from regions throughout the world. With an emphasis on communist and developing countries.
From the height of the Cold War to the dawn of the Internet and the dissolution of the Soviet Union, JPRS reports document the changes on the ground during that tumultuous time. JPRS was established in March 1957 as part of the United States Department of Commerce’s Office of Technical Services, about six months before the Soviet Union launched Sputnik 1. JPRS staffers prepared translations for use by U.S. government officials, various agencies, and the research and industrial communities.
