PMSS COLLECTIONS ON MICROFILM AT BEREA COLLEGE provides a list of selected items that were microfilmed and placed in Berea (Kentucky) College archive in 1983 as part of the Settlement Institutions of Appalachia (SIA)/Berea College Research Resources program.

The SIA was founded in 1970 as a non-profit consortium of private service institutions in South Central Appalachia. Leaders of the twelve founding institutions envisioned it as a mechanism to facilitate the exchange of ideas, cooperation in program development and fundraising. Pine Mountain Settlement School was among the original 17 member institutions. (Source: The Settlement Institutions of Appalachia Papers, Berea College Library, Berea, Ky.)

In 1979, an organization was formed calling itself the Settlement Institutions of Appalachia/ Berea College Research Resources Project (SIA). Funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)  Berea assumed the charge to organize and preserve a selected collection of Pine Mountain Settlement School collections onto microfilm. The SIA collection includes film, original records, and photographs from selected settlement institutions in Appalachia. The leadership of SIA envisioned Berea College as a central repository for the selected surrogate materials from the various institutions. Pine Mountain Settlement School was among the institutions selected for the microfilm and duplication project and constitutes one of the largest collections representing rural settlement institutions.
