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.
