Federal Courts Web Archive

By Keiko Okuhara, Bibliographic Services/Systems Librarian

The Federal Courts Web Archive provides unique resources for scholars and others conducting retrospective research into the work of the federal judiciary. These sites contain a wide variety of resources prepared by federal courts, such as: slip opinions, transcripts, dockets, court rules, calendars, announcements, judicial biographies, statistics, educational resources, and reference materials. The materials available on the federal court websites were created to support a diverse array of users and needs, including attorneys and their clients, pro se litigants seeking to represent themselves, jurors, visitors to the court, and community outreach programs.

You can view the bibliographic record for this website in the University of Hawaii Law Library’s catalog (Firefox browser preferred) or alternately, go to the Voyager catalog and execute a title search for Federal Courts Web Archive.

Included in the collection are two archives from Hawaii: U.S. District Court for the District of Hawaii and U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Hawaii.
