Part II of the Kissinger Papers is comprised of materials that are owned either by the Library of Congress or Yale University. When they were in Kissinger's possession, the papers formed an integrated collection. To maintain that integrity, as well as increase access to these materials, the two institutions agreed to a joint project undertaken by Yale to arrange, describe, and digitize them. Each institution now holds both paper and digital copies of Part II. Part III of the Kissinger Papers was given to Yale University in 2011. It comprises material originally maintained by Kissinger's staff and primarily documents his post government career.
