The Kentucky Criminal Law Information Service, housed in the
Law Library, has expanded its service to the law enforcement and

materials instantly available to selected justice officials around
Utilizing a Xerox Telecopier, which transmits and receives
copies of documents over a regular telephone line, direct connection

Kentucky Crime Commission and currently in the second year of
operation. The ready-reference service has a staff of two attor-
neys, a librarian, a secretary and part-time student researchers.
