This digitized publication contains the papers presented at the conference "Cold War Archives in the Decade of Openness," held at the Library of Congress on June 28 and 29, 2000. Sponsored by the Library and the Department of Defense, the conference represented the culmination of a four-year project, known as the "Open House Project," that brought microfilm of formerly classified records from the military archives of Hungary, Poland and Romania to the Library of Congress.

The conference explored the contents of the microfilm, the state of the Central European archives represented at the conference, and the activities of archives in the United States that focus exclusively on Cold War topics or have significant collections dealing with the Cold War.

Presented below are links to two digitized versions of the book, its record in the Library of Congress Catalog, two articles about the conference, and indexes to each of the three microfilmed collections.
