The Special Collections acquires and makes available books, periodicals, oral histories, photographs, films, and original materials documenting Utah history, Mormon history, Native Americans, and the West. Its holdings are listed on the library’s online catalog at www.lib.utah.edu/information/unis. Significant collections include the records of local churches (e.g., Episcopal Church Archives) and Sanborn maps. These large-scale maps (1867–1969) were created for fire insurance agents and depict the commercial, industrial, and residential sections of various Utah (and other western states) cities. The Sanborn Digitization Project makes some of these maps available online at www.lib.utah.edu/digital/Sanborn/browse.html.
