Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Inc - Research Institute
Content and structure
Scope and content (abstract)
The records consist primarily of clippings, abstracts of media reports, and monitoring of television and radio broadcasts. Also included is the record set of publications of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) and its predecessors (Radio Free Europe and Radio Liberty). The records of the Institute for the History of Communism, an independent entity affiliated with the Radios, are also present. The records are organized by the unit of the Research Institute or its predecessors that created the records. Many series of records continued from the early years of the Radios to the close of the Research Institute, irrespective of the name of the organizational unit that created them. Most important among these are the series of files directly concerned with the countries to which the Radios broadcast; these are found within the records of the Information Resources Department. The records are primarily textual, but they include videotapes of Russian television broadcasts and small quantities of other audiovisual materials and electronic records. Especially important are the files of samizdat publications from the Soviet Union and Poland and related information about unofficial activities in the countries of the region. Note: The records usually do not contain information about the administration of the Research Institute or of Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty. The corporate administrative records and the broadcast tapes and scripts were transferred to the Hoover Institution (http://hoorferl.stanford.edu/ Library and Archives: Radio Free Euroipe/ Radio Liberty Records)
