Special Collections

From April 15, 2016 to January 9, 2017 Special Collections will be closed due to the renovation of the south side of the library. We will still have access to our photograph collections and Polk Directories but all other items will be in storage.  The office of the curator will be on the lower level in room 014.  Please contact us via email or phone with any questions and/or research requests into photographs.



The Special Collections department of the Stewart Library focuses on collecting materials that document Ogden and Weber and Davis Counties specifically and Northern Utah generally. Such materials include printed works, and non-printed items such as photographs, maps, ephemera, personal papers and organizational records. In addition to this primary focus, the department acquires materials which help to better understand the history of Utah and those forces - both within its boundaries and in adjacent states - that have contributed to its development.

Special Collections is currently working on a project to document stories of immigrants in Ogden. More information about our upcoming exhibit will be coming soon.
