Special Collections & University Archives (SCUA)


The Special Collections and University Archives (SCUA) Reading Room has moved to room 147, located on the 1st floor. We are open Monday - Thursday 10am - 3pm and Friday by appointment.


Special Collections

Special Collections 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.
