Case Studies / The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives

Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives is one of the largest state archives collections in the U.S. and has been a pioneer in archiving electronic records since the early 80s

Today, the Kentucky State Archives e-Archives collection includes web sites, publications, minutes, geospatial (map) data sets, databases, digital images, plus video and audio recordings. Although this information is valuable for a variety of reasons, such as historical interest and legal or regulatory research, the state is also mandated by statute to preserve the records of state government that are classified as permanent by the State Archives and Records Commission
