Celebrate Kentucky Archives Month

    Archives Month is an annual celebration of the importance of archives and historical records and of the work of institutions which preserve these unique resources. These facilities and their collections are quite varied, but together, they hold a rich documentary legacy which shapes our understanding of the state’s past and our assessment of its future.
