This bibliography is a guide to printed materials dealing with West Virginia history. The sources listed include books, pamphlets, periodical literature, and unpublished theses and dissertations. As a rule, genealogies have been excluded unless they offer narrative history on West Virginia topics. This is a comprehensive list of the best and most readily available resources on various historical subjects, and the more obscure sources which are excluded are accessible through other bibliographies and indexes which may be found in this guide. My purpose is to make information concerning the printed resources on West Virginia history accessible to both the beginning student and the advanced researcher.
