US Department of State: Office of the Historian, Foreign Service Institute Release of Foreign Relations of the United States, 1961–1963, Volumes VII, VIII, IX, Arms Control; National Security Policy; Foreign Economic Policy Microfiche Supplement . “From 1993 to 1998, the Foreign Relations series published 13 microfiche supplements that included images of additional documents expanding upon issues addressed in corresponding print volumes in the Eisenhower and Kennedy subseries, which could not be printed due to space limitations. As an addition to the Office of the Historian’s digital archive of the entire Foreign Relations back catalog, the Office is digitizing the text from the microfiche images of these supplements and enriching it to create a full text searchable digital edition and ebooks.”

This is so early that I feel a little silly sharing it, but I’m afraid if I don’t it’ll get lost in my Pocket.
