Special Collections

Special Collections and University Archives are in the process of combining. The Archives Reading Room on the 1st floor is now the reading room for both departments. You can drop in M-Th from 10-3 or use the request form below for an appointment or virtual help. Fridays are by appointment only.


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.
