The Kentucky Library Research Collections comprise a unique research center of primary sources for both the university community and general public users. Originally called the "Kentucky Library" with a mission to collect "all things Kentucky," the collection quickly grew to encompass the world. We house rare books, photographs, sheet music, rare periodicals, and specialized research collections in diverse languages or formats dating from the 15th century to today.

Our holdings are unique artifacts of local, national and international importance. Current collection holdings include more than 75,000 books and periodicals, thousands of unique extant examples of ephemera, music and political memorabilia, and an ever growing number of photographs, images, and sound / video recordings. Our materials can be accessed through the One-Search Box, TOPCAT, TopSCHOLAR®, KenCat, and in-house paper finding aids.
