Federal Judicial Center Celebrates 50 Years: Websites
This section contains a visual history of the websites designed and maintained by the Federal Judicial Center, both on the courts' internal communication network (intranet) and on the Internet. Center websites have been functioning since 1995.
Center websites today consist of linked webpages and web apps, complete with videos, photos, and interactive content. These technologies make resources accessible to judicial employees and to the general public.
The use of content management systems (CMS) has revolutionized the Web and allows the various judicial agencies to develop in a collaborative manner. CMS features vary widely. There are a wide range of such systems, but most include web-based publishing, format management, history editing and version control, indexing, search, and retrieval. The FJC currently uses its CMS to store, control, revise, and publish information. In 2015, the Center launched a redesigned intranet website (FJC.dcn), and in 2017 it launched a new site on the Internet (FJC.gov).
