About KYVL


Services: Kentuckiana Digital Library

This project has two major parts. The first is to digitize finding aids from Special Collections and Archives all over the state and create a searchable database of those. The second is to digitize the actual objects in the collections and link those objects from the finding aids.

A finding aid is a standard tool used by special collections and archives to give researchers access to the collection. It generally includes information about how the archive obtained the collection, a chronology related to the collection, a brief history, and a list of the items in the collection.

Digitizing the finding aids will provide a level of access to these collections previously only available if you were actually at the institution holding those items.

The Subcommittee working on this is the Kentuckiana Subcommittee
