St. Louis Fed Releases New and Improved Free Digital Library

The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis has launched a new and improved version of its digital library of economic, financial and banking materials and has also made its content available to a broader audience through inclusion in the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).


The Federal Reserve Archival System for Economic Research (FRASER) turned 10 years old this year. Marking its decade in existence, FRASER now features these improvements, among others:

  • more intuitive browsing;
  • improved search;
  • clearer organization for archival collections;
  • sharing of FRASER resources via social media and email;
  • an in-page PDF viewer for faster viewing and browsing, as well as the ability to link to a specific page in the document;
  • ability to export information to the citation management program Zotero; and
  • a function that allows users to download metadata in XML or JSON.

For information on how to use this free digital library, see the St. Louis Fed’s guide to FRASER.
