*SmartScan: As an alternative to viewing records at an FRC or having boxes of records shipped from an FRC to a court, a new service offered by NARA, known as "SmartScan," allows members of the public to request same-day electronic delivery of a limited number of scanned judiciary pages. These requests must be made through the Clerk's Office. SmartScan eliminates shipping costs, reduces clerk's office staff time required to receive, duplicate, and distribute relevant documents, and is ideal for small or urgent requests.
