News & Events


The West Virginia and Regional History Center Newsletter is dedicated to disseminating information about the WVRHC and its mission to preserve and provide access to information resources that document the history of West Virginia and the Central Appalachian Region. The newsletters consist of brief scholarly articles, primarily about the holdings of the WVRHC with an emphasis on recent accessions, as well as guides to research and news releases about special projects and activities at the Center. Each issue also contains a selected list of recent acquisitions. The WVRHC Newsletter is distributed free of charge to all current donors to the WVRHC. You can find back issues and an index in the Research Repository. The index provides coverage from 1985 to 2005.  To search all back issues for topics of interest, navigate to the  WVRHC Newsletters at the Research Repository and use the search box on the page. 


WVRHC staff members regularly write posts for the WVU Libraries blog about new acquisitions, little-known collections, behind-the-scenes peeks at staff projects, special events, instruction, and more. Feedback is encouraged - if there is a subject you would like us to cover, please let us know!
