The World Basic Information Library (WBIL) is a joint U.S. Army and U.S. Navy program, which allows Reserve Component (RC) personnel of all U.S. Armed Forces branches to participate in contributing Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) information in accordance with tasking requirements from the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC).
The mission of the WBIL project is to collect, research and catalogue open source information documents in support of validated intelligence community and DoD requirements. This includes OSINT research and translation tasking as mission requirements dictate. The WBIL is a "virtual research library" built upon the basic information requirements of the IC and military planners. The WBIL constitutes the central data base resource under the FMSO's Open Source Information System (OSIS).
