Berea College and Pine Mountain Settlement School have worked in close partnership for more than a century. Evidence of that collaboration, the institutions involved, and the communities served has been collected and preserved by both schools over many decades. Recognizing our shared history and a common desire to make our inter-related historical records, images, and recordings more accessible, in 2023 the Pine Mountain Settlement School Archives and the Berea College Special Collections and Archives created this joint Library Guide. Within you will find:
The home page also allows guests to plan and schedule research appointments, request consultations, and organize a class visit to the reading room. Tabs at the top of the page link to descriptions of exhibitions and online projects, college records management data, information about the work of Folklorist Emily Hilliard, and general information about the holdings and activities of the Special Collections and Archives department of Hutchins Library.
