Our friends at KDLA [the state library/archives] have announced a new website. Per our colleague Nancy Houseal, State Library Services, in an email today:
“Have you seen it? KDLA’s new website (http://kdla.ky.gov/Pages/default.aspx) was launched on March 15. It has a fresh look and was designed with you in mind! When entering the new site, look for the Librarians tab at the top left to find all information relative to you.
KDLA’s web address has changed slightly and many of your old bookmarks will no longer link to your favorite KDLA web pages. Here is a handy list that will help you locate the State Library’s programming materials and resources:
Kit Request Form: http://kdla.ky.gov/librarians/askalibrarian/Pages/KitRequest.aspx
Book Discussion Kits (all types): http://kdla.ky.gov/librarians/programs/Pages/BookKits.aspx
Thematic Kits (all types): http://kdla.ky.gov/librarians/programs/Pages/ThematicKits.aspx
Circulating Audiobook Collection: http://kdla.ky.gov/librarians/programs/Pages/CirculatingCollections.aspx
Circulating Large Type Collection: http://kdla.ky.gov/librarians/programs/Pages/CirculatingCollections.aspx
Can’t find what you need on the new website or want to make a comment (good or bad) about the website? Please contact the Reference desk at (800)-928-7000, ext. 342.”
KDLA is a major financial supporter of the KYVL licensed research databases and a very good friend partner in resource sharing and other initiatives. You can access the services of KDLA as a state employee or as a citizen of Kentucky. If you are a university, public library patron or other, you have resources available to you as well, including using interlibrary loan to borrow materials at the state library. We could go on and on regarding what KDLA offers you but see for yourself.
