CIA Records Search Tool Now Online


The CIA recently announced that its CREST tool is now available online.  CREST is an electronic database of records that have been declassified under the CIA's 25 year program.  While the CREST tool only contains a subset of the declassified records, previously researchers were required to visit the National Archives in Maryland to search the database, so the online tool greatly increases the availability of these records. 

The records include information about topics such as the Berlin Tunnel, Project Stargate, and Secret Writing.  Users can browse the archive or use the website’s advanced search feature to search the records.  To learn more about CREST, visit the CIA website.
