I saw some information for DARE online and was extremely interested in it. I found out that my school library has all three volumes of it, so that will be a wonderful resource for me to use. This has been rather frustrating - I grew up with Appalachian speakers all around me and never gave it a second thought until I needed to find some actual resources for the dialect.
