Where is the library's Appalachian collection located?

The Appalachian Collection, located on Level 2 of the library, houses books by Appalachian authors and other books written about the Appalachian area. Some of these books are considered rare and no longer in print and are housed in the Rare Books cabinets in this room. Emphasis is placed on Appalachia, Kentucky, local history of the region, works by writers affiliated with the University of the Cumberlands, and works by local authors. This collection includes works of literature, history, religion, and natural sciences. The Governor Bert T. Combs Papers are housed in acid free boxes in special cabinets in this collection.
