CHAPTER SIXTEEN
For the Future: Suggested Sources

Kentucky politics, like all political systems, is in flux; changes take place almost daily. Therefore, "even the most careful descriptions and insights can quickly become obsolete or inaccurate as the subject of study alters."1 As noted throughout this book, Kentucky's political institutions--the legislature, the executive, the judiciary, political parties and interest groups, and local governments--have experienced profound changes just in the last two decades.

Until the 1950s, finding pertinent and reliable information about Kentucky government and politics was extraordinarily frustrating. "There was no true state library; there was no authoritative bibliographic control of state publications; and there had been little systematic analysis of [ Kentucky's] political institutions and behavior by political scientists."2

After long efforts to establish a state agency to administer state records, the 1958 General Assembly created the State Archives and Records Service to gather and manage previously scattered documents. Later the service was renamed the Division of Archives and Records Management, and it merged with the Division of Libraries to become the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives ( KDLA). In 1981, the division was renamed the Public Records Division to stress its life-cycle approach to records.

Today, KDLA'S Public Records Division houses original state and local government records which total 80,000 cubic feet. It is a repository for the state's public records including county and circuit court records, constitutional records, bank and General Assembly reports, and so on. It also maintains an achives research room staffed with volunteers and assistants.

Many publications written by Kentuckians about Kentucky politics are published by the University Press of Kentucky. Originally called the University of Kentucky Press
