West Virginia Collection

Enter »
The West Virginia Collection is a regional collection of published materials that deals with West Virginia and surrounding states, particularly Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. The collection also emphasizes the Appalachian Region, as well as the American Civil War.

The collection includes books, journals, state documents, newspapers, a vertical file of newspaper clippings and pamphlets, maps, phone books, and microforms.

Patrons may browse books of fiction and family history. The rest of the collection is contained in a Closed Stack Area. The Special Collections staff provides assistance in retrieving materials not available for public browsing.

You will find a copy of West Virginia: A Historical Resource Guide, prepared to complement the four-part video history of West Virginia used in the public schools.
