Since its establishment in 1914, PAIS (Public Affairs Information Service) has chronicled issues in the public debate through highly selective coverage of a wide variety of sources. The PAIS International
database contains citations to journal articles, books, government documents, statistical directories, grey literature, research reports, conference reports, publications of international agencies, microfiche, and Internet material. Newspapers and newsletters are not indexed. Searched with PAIS International and covering 1915-1976, the PAIS Archive
provides historical perspective on many of the 20th century's public and social policies and contains over 1.23 million records to monographs, periodical articles, notes and announcements, and analytics. Updated, monthly, PAIS International covers 1972-present.
