American County Histories – A Unique Research Resource!

American County Histories provide vivid portraits of people, places and events, putting a state’s local and regional history into current context with the examination of demographic, social, economic, and cultural transformations. This webinar explores the question — Why should researchers, historians, and librarians encourage on-going preservation and use of a publication genre like county histories? It also discusses publication trends, library user cases, the scope of online resources, and more.
