Research Appointments

You're busy. We can help. 

We understand that your students may not have all the skills they need to produce quality research projects. However, with our revamped Research Appointment Scheduler, we're hoping to change that. Now, students can easily locate a subject specialist to help them with their research project, from the beginning (finding and evaluating sources) to the end (citations). Additionally, you may want to work with  your Library Liaison to require that your students meet with a subject expert before turning over a rough draft. To learn more about this service, contact Tom Kmetz: (email: t.kmetz@moreheadstate.edu) (phone: 606-783-5111).

Campus Delivery Service for Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff who work on the main campus of Morehead State University can place a Campus Delivery Service request through the Library's online catalog for delivery of circulating items held by the Library. Student workers will deliver items to department or unit offices. Items may also be pulled and held at the Circulation Desk. If after 7 days the item is not picked up, the item will be returned to the collection.


Requests for the delivery service may be made at any time through the Library's catalog; however, the actual delivery service is available from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, during the Library's regular open hours. For example, a delivery request placed before 9 a.m. on a weekday will be processed and delivered to the person's departmental office the same day. The service is not available when campus offices are closed.

Stop by the Circulation Desk and ask to see a demonstration of the service.

For more information call the Camden-Carroll Library Circulation Desk at 606-783-5490.

  2. Reserve material should be on 8½ X 11 or 8½ X 14 inch paper and should not be stapled, folded, or creased.

Traditional Reserves

  1. In order for the Library to place an item on traditional reserve, instructors should give the reserve material to the staff at the Circulation Desk.
  2. Material placed on reserve may be in any form (book, DVD, map, etc...). This material may be the property of the library or the instructor.

All reserves will be returned to the instructor or placed back into circulation at the end of the semester.

Records Management

As a public agency, defined by KRS 61.870, Morehead State University is required by law to establish a comprehensive records management program (see Kentucky's Public Record Law, KRS 171.680, below). Public records are defined in KRS 61.870 as documentary materials in all physical formats which are "prepared, owned, used, in the possession of or retained by a public agency."

 

Records Consultations

If you need to archive or destroy university records, please contact Dieter Ullrich at 606-783-5122.

Full details on the retention and destruction of university records may be found on the Records Management site.


Kentucky's Public Record Law: KRS 171.410 - 171.740

The head of a public agency has a key role in ensuring the implementation of a records management program. Under the terms of KRS 171.680, the agency head is required to establish and maintain an active, continuing program for the economical, efficient management of the records of his or her agency. The law mandates that the program should include:

  • effective controls over the creation, maintenance, and use of records in the conduct of current business;
  • cooperation with KDLA in applying standards, procedures, and techniques designed to improve the management of records;
  • promotion of the maintenance and security of records considered appropriate for preservation, and facilitation of the segregation and disposal of records of temporary value; and
  • compliance with the provisions of the Commonwealth's public records management statutes, KRS 171.410 - 171.740, and the rules and regulations of the Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives.

An essential part of a fully implemented records management program is regular application and use of an approved records retention schedule. A schedule is a list of each records type, what is termed a "record series," created by an institution. A current, accurate records retention schedule should represent a comprehensive inventory of the information resources of an institution.

An agency's Records Officer, representing the agency head and named by him or her to serve as liaison for records management issues with KDLA, typically works with the agency's staff to compile the schedule in draft form, prior to its review by KDLA personnel and the State Archives and Records Commission. Once the schedule (or updates to
it) is approved by the Commission, the agency may apply the schedule to its records management needs, with the confidence that it has the legal authority to make disposition of its records following the directions contained in the schedule.

While the schedule is a comprehensive expression of the agency's information resources, it also reflects the way an agency meets the requirements of KRS 171.640. Under its terms, the agency head is also responsible for seeing that records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organizational functions, policies, decisions,
procedures, and essential transactions of the agency - records designed to furnish information necessary to protect the legal and financial rights of the government and of persons directly affected by the agency's activities - are made and preserved.

Another important role delegated to the agency is ensuring the proper storage of records. By the terms of KRS 171.690, whenever agency heads determine that substantial economies or increased operating efficiency can be achieved, they are directed to provide for the storage, processing and servicing of appropriate records in the records center maintained and operated by KDLA, or, when approved by KDLA, in a location maintained and operated by the agency itself. Providing for the protection of records is another essential responsibility delegated to agencies, and as directed by KRS 171.710, the agency head is required to establish those safeguards against removal or loss of records that are believed necessary or which may be required by KDLA rules and regulations. These safeguards must include advising all officials and employees of the agency that no records are to be
transferred to another party or destroyed except in accordance with law, and calling their attention to the penalties provided by law for the unlawful removal or destruction of records.

The agency head is also directed to notify KDLA of any actual, impending or threatened unlawful removal, defacing, alteration or destruction of records in the custody of the agency which may come to his or her attention, and with KDLA's assistance, to initiate action through the Attorney General for recovery of any records which may have been unlawfully removed and for any other redress which may be provided for under the law.

The agency head plays an important role in the records management process, and in all of these actions, he or she can depend upon the cooperation of KDLA staff and the State Archives and Records Commission.

Per the library's Collection Development Policy, the role of the faculty member is as follows:

Responsibility of the faculty

An adequate university library can be developed only through the active interest of faculty members in recommending acquisitions pertinent to their specialized fields. Academic departments are allocated a portion of the library budget each fiscal year to spend for library materials. However, materials acquired upon the recommendation of a department will not be designated for the exclusive use of any person or group. Each department chairman is expected to make an equitable distribution of the departmental library allocation in order to provide library support for the work of the entire department according to the general library acquisitions policy.
