Kentucky State Publications
A state publication is defined as any published materials, regardless of format, issued for general distribution, which document agency-related functions or activities. As such, a state publication may be considered a "published record". Agencies produce these publications as a public record of their activities.
KDLA's Kentucky State Publications collection is jointly managed by the Public Records and State Library Services divisions.
