Information about Appalachia is not in one specific section, but scattered throughout the collection, according to the topic, i.e., education, history, literature, music, etc. With that said, there are two fantastic reference books that touch on most aspects of Appalachia’s history, land, culture, and people. Located in the reference department, these books are:

  • Encyclopedia of Appalachia  Call Number:  R 974 E563 2006

  • Handbook to Appalachia      Call Number:  R 974 H236 2006

For additional background information on Appalachia, consult our Applachian Studies LibGuide, linked to below.

If you have a more specific question after browsing the guide, please consult the Reference Desk. Anyone there will be glad to help you locate further resources.
