FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Department for Libraries and Archives has announced the retirement of longtime state archivist Barbara Teague.

When Teague began her career in 1983, the State Archives and State Records Centers had combined holdings of nearly 130,000 cubic feet and the staff shared three computers. Now, holdings of the Archives and the Records Center combine for close to 325,000 cubic feet, the electronic records archives contains four terabytes of government data and research requests and web customers exceed 6,500 per month.

As state archivist and records administrator, Teague was responsible for an archives and records management program for state and local government.

Teague will continue as an archivist and records manager. She’s relocating to Richmond, Virginia, where she has accepted the job of Government Records Services division director at the Library of Virginia.
