Anyone who frets over organizing family records ought to consider the daily challenge facing Barbara Teague and her staff. As Kentucky's state archivist, Teague oversees 310,000 cubic feet of records stored in the Public Records Division of the State Department of Libraries and Archives — documenting the official history of Kentucky. Also under her care are about 220,000 rolls of microfilm and more data stored electronically than — were it on paper — could fit into an average Kentucky county library.
Tom Loftus has written an article in the (Louisville) Courier-Journal that describes what Barbara Teague and her staff are doing to meet today's challenges. The article is available at http://goo.gl/QW2dk
