When I say Central Intelligence Agency, I’m sure you are thinking about security and espionage … but how about as a practical source of research information? The CIA actually manages millions of pages of documents each year and has available items of public interest on its web pages.
The CIA Library contains a wealth of information, from unclassified current publications to basic references, reports and maps. The Library features many popular publications, including The World Fact Book, and an online directory of Chiefs of State and Cabinet Members of Foreign Governments.
Looking for a source of international data for your next business report or strategic plan? Try the CIA. Jack Ryan need not be involved.
