The J. Willard Marriott Library Special Collections Division serves the University of Utah community, the citizens of Utah, and scholars around the world through the stewardship of original and scarce resources. Its curatorial and archival staff collects, preserves, and provides access to materials that extend across a broad range of topics and formats. Rare books, maps, and ephemera document the record of human communication and provide diverse perspectives on local and global history. Unpublished archival manuscripts, photographs, posters, and video and audio recordings document the past and current history of Utah and the Intermountain West through different experiences of Western life. Extensive secondary publications support these collecting areas while a fully developed preservation program ensures that these unique materials will be available for future generations.
