AMC’s Appalachia Journal to be hosted on Dartmouth Library’s Digital Commons

Past issues of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s historic publication Appalachia will be accessible free online through the Dartmouth Digital Commons website.

Boston, MA  and Hanover, NH March 16, 2021– The Winter/Spring 2021 issue of Appalachia Journal is now available in PDF form on the Dartmouth Digital Commons website, managed by the Dartmouth Library.

Published continuously by the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) since 1876, Appalachia is America’s longest-running journal of mountaineering and conservation. For 145 years, the journal has delivered inspired writing on mountain exploration, ecology, and conservation; news about international mountaineering expeditions; analysis of Northeastern mountaineering accidents; and much more.

Dartmouth Digital Commons (DDC) is a publishing platform and repository for scholarly, research, and educational outputs created by the faculty, staff, and students of Dartmouth. The connections between Appalachia and Dartmouth are strong. Since the outdoor boom of the late 1800s, both institutions have promoted adventure in New England and the world, and scholarship about mountains. DDC will host archives of AMC’s Appalachia Journal in PDF form, beginning with Appalachia’s Winter/Spring 2021 issue. New issues of Appalachia will be added to DDC’s website three months after subscribers to the journal receive their physical copies in the mail. Additional back issues of Appalachia will be available on DDC in the near future. This digital content will be free and accessible to all.

“This project marks a significant step toward expanding Appalachia’s community of researchers and adventurers worldwide, to people who might not know about AMC or the contributions its journal has made to the history of mountain exploration,” said AMC President and CEO John Judge. “We thank Dartmouth Library for joining with AMC in this important mission of extending adventure articles and research to new and diverse audiences around the world.”

Founded in 1876, the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) promotes the protection, enjoyment, and understanding of the mountains, forests, waters, and trails of America’s Northeast. AMC helps people of all ages and abilities to explore and develop a deep appreciation of the natural world. With chapters from Maine to Washington, D.C., guidebooks and maps, and unique lodges and huts, AMC helps people get outdoors on their own, with family and friends, and through activities close to home and beyond. AMC invites the public to support its conservation advocacy and research, youth programming, and care of 1,800 miles of trails.

Since its founding in 1769 to educate Native students, English youth, and others, Dartmouth has provided an intimate and inspirational setting where talented faculty, students, and staff­­—diverse in background but united in purpose—contribute to the strength of an exciting academic community that cuts easily across disciplines. Dartmouth College educates the most promising students and prepares them for a lifetime of learning and of responsible leadership, through a faculty dedicated to teaching and the creation of knowledge.
