My colleague Dr. Brian Leech, a history professor at Augustana College, and I are seeking the opinions of mining historians about the best books in mining history. The survey is anonymous. The results of the survey will be publicized at a future conference of the Mining History Association (and perhaps other academic conferences), and a journal article exploring the results in greater detail will be prepared for consideration by an academic journal in the field. Finally, upon submission of the article, the de-identified data will be made publicly available through this website, hosted on servers of the Arizona State University library.

If you read mining history books, please take our survey. Your opinion is important, and helps us better understand the field! It consists of just six short questions and takes 8-12 minutes to complete. Please visit http://bit.ly/MiningBooksSurvey to take the survey, which is available until March 31, 2019.

Thank you for your participation!
