For more than seventy years, the University of Kentucky Libraries has preserved thousands of Kentucky newspapers, making them freely available to researchers, genealogists, and the general public. We bring many of those newspapers to the world through a keyword-searchable online interface called the Kentucky Digital Newspaper Program (KDNP), and here at KDNP's Feature Library, we've made the discovery of specific collections easier than ever and each item comes with additional information that may further assist in research.

You may come across language in UK Libraries Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) collections and online resources that you find harmful or offensive. SCRC collects materials from different cultures and time periods to preserve and make available the historical record. These materials document the time period when they were created and the view of their creator. As a result, some may demonstrate racist and offensive views that do not reflect the values of UK Libraries.

If you find a description with problematic language that you think SCRC should review, please contact us at
