About Foreign Broadcast Information Service Electronic Index

Subject

The Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Electronic Index is an index to the Daily Reports issued by the U.S. Government. The Daily Reports include translated broadcasts, news agency transmissions, newspapers, periodicals, and government statements from nations around the world. They focus on political, economic, scientific, and cultural issues and events throughout the world.

The Index covers all regions included in the Daily Reports and reflects the changes that have occurred in them since 1975. The electronic Index merges the FBIS regions so that a researcher can retrieve citations to help locate information directly from a country and from other countries.
