Start Preamble August 11, 2003.

On May 13, 2002, the Commission issued a Notice announcing the establishment of the Federal Energy Regulatory Records Information System, or FERRIS. This online system replaced three document management systems that were previously available at the Commission's Internet Web site: the Commission Issuance Posting System (CIPS), the Record Information Management System (RIMS), and the Docket Sheet System.

The Commission now gives notice that, effective August 11, 2003, FERRIS is renamed to eLibrary. This action coincides with the launch of the Commission's new Internet Web site today at

The name eLibrary is in keeping with the e-Government services the Commission has planned as part of its FERC Online initiatives. See​docs-filing/​ferconline.asp.

eLibrary will have essentially the same features as FERRIS. Over the next coming year, eLibrary will be improved to meet the needs of the Commission's customers. eLibrary users will also continue to see references to FERRIS. The referenced materials will be changed to eLibrary over the next couple of months.
