FOIA Libraries

FOIA Libraries are the repositories for many documents released under the FOIA (Freedom of Information Act), i.e., “responsive documents,” by federal agencies and their sub agencies.  There are over 240 FOIA Libraries.  You can search for an "agency name" and "FOIA Library" to get right to the FOIA Library for a federal agency.
