Our e-resources highlight of the month is Mountain People: Life and Culture in Appalachia, which is a database containing primary resources such as "diaries, journals, and narratives of explorers, emigrants, military men, Native Americans, and travelers. In addition, there are accounts on the development of farming and mining communities, family histories, and folklore. These accounts provide a view of the of the vast region between Lexington, Kentucky and Winchester, Virginia, from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Birmingham, Alabama, which spans three and a half centuries and provides information on the social, political, economic, scientific, religious and agricultural characteristics of the region."

The date range is 1700s - 1950s and the database contains over 42,122 images. 

Take some time and explore the "Mountain People: Life and Culture in Appalachia" database.

We also have the content of this database available in microfiche format in Special Collections on the 4th floor of the library.
