Reading Room Index
The FBI Freedom
of Information Act (FOIA) Reading Room is located within the J.
Edgar Hoover Building at FBI Headquarters, Washington, D.C. Thousands
of pages of frequently requested FBI documents that have been released
under the provisions of the FOIA are stored in the Reading Room.
The FBI has
converted many of these documents to an electronic format (PDF)
and they may be viewed on this website. The documents available
in the Reading Room are listed below, with those available
hyperlinked (underlined). In the case of voluminous pages, only
summaries or excerpts from the documents are on-line.
All of these publications are in PDF (Portable Document Format). To view them you will need to have the Adobe Acrobat Reader plug-in installed on your computer. The Reader can be downloaded at no cost from Adobe's site on the World Wide Web.
If you have difficulty accessing any material on this site because of a disability, please contact us in writing or via telephone and we will work with you to make the information available.
