Special Collections Subject Guides
Special Collections by Subject Heading
Special Collections materials and resource guides to assist researchers with multiple subjects. To help researchers more easily find what they need, we grouped by topic our manuscript collections, relevant library websites, pathfinders, and bibliographies. These guides supplement our clippings file and on-line catalog.
Disclaimer: The pathfinders, documents that serves as map and guide to bibliographic research on specific topics, included on these pages were compiled by Appalachian Studies 5000 "Appalachian Research and Bibliography" graduate students from 1997 to present. These pathfinders, like the students who produced them, vary in quality: some are excellent and others, while not as complete or as skillfully prepared, are still useful to the novice researcher. The pathfinders also serve as introduction to more exhaustive bibliographies covering the same topics. The bibliographies are on file in the W. L. Eury Appalachian Collection. Because these pathfinders are the intellectual property of former students, they are not updated except to remove links to defunct websites.
