Appalachian Resources

K-12 Educational Resources

The list* includes entries for teaching in and about the Appalachian region for use by teachers in the K-12 classroom, as well as resources for teachers pursuing advanced degrees. Inclusion on the list is not an assurance of quality. The original list of educational resources was developed by Philip Obermiller and posted to the ASA website in 2001. In 2011, when the current version of the website was developed, the list was updated. Links were updated, entries were reorganized into new categories, and a few entries were added to the list. If you have any additions or revisions for the list or would like to share your experiences using some of these resources, please contact us.

Academic Programs 

This list was compiled with help from Stephanie Roark Keener of the John B. Stephenson Center for Appalachian and Comparative Highland Studies at Lees-McRae College and David Veve of the Appalachian Studies Center at North Georgia College and State University.

Course Syllabi

Appalachian Studies Association's online syllabus archive* is a resource for instructors designing Appalachian Studies courses and as well as a partial history of the teaching of Appalachian Studies.


Syllabi are listed according to the department in which they are taught. Please include your name, the course, department, and school name when contacting us. 

Appalachian Libraries and Archives 

Here is a selected list of academic research centers, archives and manuscript collections, and libraries and museums. While we strive to keep our list updated, please contact us if you find an error or would like to add your organization.
