Every January we start to work on updating all the newsletters, news releases, annual reports and other state agency periodical collections in the KGI Online Library adding the previous years cumulated titles to the online collection. This is a huge task involving hundreds of issues. Most of this work falls on the shoulders of Rita Troxel in Technical Services. Vicky Wolf helps as well. Our hats are off to both for their continued labors in updating/adding these titles.
Here's a sampling of just the news releases issued by a few of the state agencies that we have collected in the KGI Online Library. Our collections of news releases are not always complete but on the whole they give the viewer a good look at the activities of a Kansas state agency through the years.
The dates under each agency indicate how far back we have the news releases for that particular agency. Keep in mind that this is just a sample of a handful of Kansas state agency news releases.
