FDLP

Increasing Participants in the PACER Access and Education Program

After initial beta testing, the PACER: Access and Education Program is ready to expand the number of participating libraries. The Program is now ready to add fifty Federal depository libraries. Priority will be given to those libraries that participated in the PACER pilot of 2007/2008.

Building on activities already performed in libraries, Program participants will develop training materials and conduct training sessions. Materials will be housed in a centralized location on the FDLP Desktop and be available for all to use and to adapt to meet local needs. The Program will be open to Federal depository libraries, public libraries, and public law libraries. Libraries participating in PACER: Access and Education Program will be exempt from the first $50 of quarterly usage charges.

Public Access to Court Electronic Records (PACER) is an online service of the United States Judiciary that provides case and docket information from Federal appellate, district, and bankruptcy courts. PACER: Access and Education Program is a collaborative effort of the FDLP, the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (AOUSC), and the American Association of Law Libraries (AALL). It was established to increase the proficiency of public users of PACER and to increase greater awareness of and access to the service as well as provide new content for the FDLP.

If you want more information or are interested in participating in the Program, review the documentation and register by using the "Questions about the PACER: Access and Education Program" form in PACER: Access and Education Program.
