The Appalachian-Scottish & Irish Studies Collection focuses on the various components of the academic studies program examining the history and culture of Appalachia, Scotland, Ireland, and the interrelationships of the three locales. Materials document course work, lectures, field trips, student papers or projects, notes, schedules, and other aspects of the program. Documentation is found in manuscript records, audio and videorecordings, and photographs. The material provides insight on such subjects as folklore, storytelling and oral traditions, Appalachian and Gaelic language and literature, traditional music, migration patterns, and other aspects of Appalachian, Scottish, and Irish (including Ulster) history and culture.
