The following NSDDs were declassified or further declassified after 2005. Some were found in odd places at the Reagan library, or used in my book, “The Reagan Files: The Untold Story of Reagan’s Top-Secret Effort to Win the Cold War,” and in "The Reagan Files: Inside the National Security Council."
Most National Securuity Decision Directives as as well as National Security Study Directives can be found at the Reagan Library. The Federation of American Scientists has also digitized many of the NSDDs and NSSDs (www.fas.org), but the Ronald Reagan Library in 2013 started their own page of NSDDs, which seems to be the most up to date collection of NSDDs.
