LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- The Kentucky Derby Museum is allowing the public access to more than 10,000 items related to Kentucky Derby history with many of the items digitized and available online.

The new Colonel Clark Library, named for the Derby's founder, is open on Tuesdays and is also available by appointment.

Items date back to the mid-19th century and include books, newspapers, magazines and manuscripts.

The collection of longtime sports writer Jim Bolus makes up thousands of research files, printed materials and recorded interviews covering thoroughbred racing from 1875 to 1995.
