  1. Angeline Liekens (BEL) has been MSIAC's Information Specialist for over 20 years now. She managed to build MSIAC's incredible extensive document database.

Our database has been a major asset of MSIAC from the beginning and now holds a staggering 189,000 (unclassified) documents, or over 5.0M pages of fully searchable information. Among these documents are more than 21,000 Journal Articles, almost 58,000 documents from Symposia, more than 18,000 Technical reports, about 24,200 MSIAC member nation's and 9,500 NATO Cadre Group related documents and many more.

Most of these documents are available for MSIAC staff, but some 27,500 documents are now available to secure web environment users from MSIAC Nations (though this depends on what you have been authorised to see). Don’t forget that the MSIAC staff can search the entire contents on your behalf, and regularly do so when answering technical question.  (
