Information and Services for Government Records Management


Every office creates records, whether in paper, film, electronic or in some other format; the effort in maintaining these can be a burden. The Records Management Services at KDLA can help organizations decide which ones to keep and which ones to destroy in accordance with the requirements of Kentucky’s State Archives and Records Act, KRS 171.410-171.740.
