Archive Overload Wayne Onkst of Erlanger, Ky., inherited a $10 million problem when he took over as the Kentucky state librarian in November.
By law, the state librarian is responsible for housing Kentucky's public records and archives. But the state ran out of storage space in 2005 and clamped a moratorium on accepting new documents.
Before Onkst arrived, state library officials decided the solution was to add 16,000 square feet of storage space to the Kentucky state library building in the state capital of Frankfort.
