Carol Kammen offers advice to those wishing to publish county or regional histories.

She suggests things such as gathering a group of people who could create well-researched articles on specific topics of local interest, interviewing local experts, and considering different options when it comes to printing.

For example, perhaps a pamphlet is more suited to your needs, budget, and audience than a hardbound encyclopedia.

Kammen hopes the advice in this article can encourage the best options for the presentation of history to twenty-first century local audiences.
