Tl l2 ig;. List of Abbreviations, Symbols, and Explanatory Notes ww in het. This, of course, dries out the paper, and records become very brittle. ww J v_ Provisions have been made in the county clerk's and circuit clerk's offices Q . for the accom odation of persons desiring to use county records in the care of F c these two officials. Assistance in locating desired information is freely and Q eeurteously given upon request. Records kept in other offices are procurable ly for anyone interested in examining them. QQ Records of the jailer and the coroner are kept at their respective offices. =V The jailer's records are kept in a wooden cabinet; those of the coroner are in it e steel cabinet along with papers of the undertaking establishment of which he gw is a member. The records, too, are available upon request at reasonable times. N Neither of the buildings in which they are housed are completely fireproof. j The beard of health office is located at 52l South Mill Street in Lexing~ i . ton. All county health records are kept in locked steel file cabinets, arranged i consecutively. The office is dry and sufficiently ventilated and lighted. y Clinic records are located in the office of the Public Health Center, southwest { corner of Upper and Mechanic Streets, Lexington. T we would recommend; (l) that some effective system of protecting records ,j in the attic record rooms be considered; (2) that more care be exercised in T cleaning the floors, particularly in rooms containing records close to the ? floors; and (5) that the records in the attic rooms and those in the circuit %` clerk’s office and anteroom be placed in fireproof rooms or vaults to preserve IH them from the hazard of fire. The records in the attic rooms are open to the VW public without the presence of a custodian, and there may be a temptation to lp persons who see the records, not as public property to be protected and pre- ip served, but only as a means of private gain.
