UK Libraries Provide Information for Recent History Channel Program:

William T. Young Library Reference Services was a part of the recent Hatfields and McCoys blockbuster production on the History Channel! Laura Hall, the Periodicals, Newspapers and Microforms (PNM) supervisor, and Hayley Whitehead, a PNM student assistant, worked with the producers of the six-hour “Hatfields & McCoys” mini-series on research for a companion two-hour documentary, “America's Greatest Feud: The History of the Hatfields & McCoys.”

 Laura and Hayley provided relevant articles from newspapers from the time period, including the Louisville Courier-Journal. The premiere of the documentary was Saturday, June 2 at 4:00pm EST on the History Channel. Although a rebroadcast date has not yet been scheduled, more information about the documentary may be found at the Huntington News.net site at http://www.huntingtonnews.net/33805.
