In 2015, an ad hoc KDL Work Group was convened as follows:

Due to recent changes in the Kentucky Digital Library, the KYVL Leadership Team is seeking volunteers for a new Kentucky Digital Library (KDL) Work Group. Volunteers should represent libraries that currently have digital content in KDL or those that may be interested in adding digital content to KDL in the near future.

The charge of the KDL Work Group is to advise KYVL in sustaining access to digital content housed in Kentucky repositories and institutions for use by KYVL constituents. The initial timeline for work group activities calls for an environmental scan to be completed by February, 2016, and a proposed model developed by May, 2016.

The Kentucky Digital Library Work Group's Final Report was submitted in May, 2016.
