Blogs about Appalachia

A word about blogs:  just because the blog is posted here does not mean that the library endorses or verifies that the information is correct or appropriate.  You should carefully evaluate all information whether it is in online or print or audio format.  MU Libraries has suggested criteria for evaluating online informaiton.  You will find the criteria posted on this page.

In some cases these blogs continue the Appalachian tradition of storytelling in accessible and high-tech ways.
