Records Program

About

The UK Records Program coordinates records management efforts throughout the University system, ensuring that records procedures are consistent and fulfill internal needs and external requirements. With the assistance of the liaisons in University colleges and departments, the Program helps UK units apply the State University Model Records Retention Schedule to their records and advises them on such topics as records reformatting and storage. The Records Program is an important first step in capturing and preserving University records for the University Archives.

The purpose of this website is to provide you with easily accessible information pertaining to records management and records keeping practices and to alert you to the legal and fiscal responsibilities of the University of Kentucky as a public agency; responsibilities of all UK employees. See Public and Open Records for more information regarding records laws and access.

Records are fundamental in the operation of any office. How these records are managed determines office efficiency. The purpose of the Records Program is to provide records management guidance. Please make use of our Records Program site and let us know how we can be of assistance to you.

For additional information or assistance please contact University Archives and Records Program by email at uarp@lsv.uky.edu.
