Research resources at the WVRHC include collections, databases of genealogical and primary source material, and subject guides that outline resources and research techniques for various subjects such as genealogy. Subject guides also include links to a historical bibliography of publications related to West Virginia, and an extensive list of websites related to West Virginia culture and history.

Research grants are now available to help defray expenses of scholars who must travel long distances to use the Center’s resources in the course of their research.

A teacher resources guide has been developed which includes selected digitized photographs from the history of West Virginia divided into time eras for ease of use, and an accompanying photo analysis worksheet to make the best use of these primary sources in the classroom.
