Electronic Records Archives

The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives has created an Electronic Records Archives (e-Archives) as a way of managing digital public records and making them available to our citizens.  The Electronic Records Archives (e-Archives) is a way of expanding KDLA's capacity to manage digital records of archival value. The e-Archives contains a variety of electronic records produced by state government agencies.  We hope you will find that this new resource will speed your access to a wide range of information.

Records in the e-archives are organized by agency under the structure of state government by cabinet, branch of government, and constitutional office. Records in an agency are arranged according the records series listed in the Records Retention Schedules.
