Records Management

About

Welcome to Records Management at the University of Kentucky!

Records are fundamental to office operation—uncontrolled proliferation of records leads to serious impairment of our effectiveness and ability to do our work; and significant increases in operating costs, risk, and liability.  Vital and historical records are necessary for day-to-day work, strategic and long-range planning, assessment, and celebrating milestones.  In addition, the University of Kentucky is a state agency.  By law, all records that are created, used, and/or in its possession are public records and must be managed according to Kentucky statutes.  This means records management is the legal responsibility of all UK employees. 

When you’re facing a room full of boxes or a server full of files, records management can appear daunting, especially if it’s new to you.  University records managers are here to help!  Contact us at uarp@lsv.uky.edu or 859-257-1742.
