Effective June 29, 2020, the KGS Public Information Sales Office is now open for business via phone or email. To place an order or ask for help, please contact Roger Banks by phone at 859-257-3896 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Standard size orders that are received by Friday of each week will be filled and mailed the following Tuesday. Large orders that require extensive printing may take longer. Currently, the KGS Public Information Sales Office is not open for in-person business due to COVID-19.
Effective March 19, 2020 and until further notice, almost all KGS staff are working remotely in accordance with the University of Kentucky response to the ongoing pandemic. A small number of our staff essential to IT, business, and research operations will be in our buildings on a limited basis under strict protocols designed to limit possible transmission of the virus. Our main UK campus office, Earth Analysis Research Library, and Henderson office are closed to the public until further notice. We may be away from our desks, but we will continue to be as responsive as possible to our stakeholders in industry, government, academia, and the community in Kentucky and beyond. The KGS website has always included educational resources. We will be adding even more over time to help support parents in Kentucky and elsewhere with school-age children at home. Please let us know if you have ideas or suggestions for new educational resources related to the geology and natural resources of Kentucky. We will post periodic updates on our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram accounts as well as the News and Announcements panel on the KGS website. You can also send email to us at KGSmail@uky.edu and we'll direct your message to the right person.
