Archives of Appalachia
a unit of the Center for Appalachian Studies and Services
The Archives of Appalachia is a repository for memories — the written words, images,
and sounds that document life in southern Appalachia. We steward nearly two miles
of rare manuscripts, 250,000 photographs, 90,000 audio and moving image recordings,
and 14,000 books.
More than 2,000 visitors from ETSU and around the globe utilize our collections each year for scholarly and creative projects. Our Reading Room is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
