  • Utah Digital Newspapers
    • In 2001 the Marriott Library was awarded a Library Services and Technology (LSTA) grant to develop a newspaper digitization project. As a result, the Library successfully digitized 30,000 pages from three weekly newspapers. Later, the University of Utah partnered with Brigham Young University, Utah State University, and Salt Lake Community College to create Utah’s only keyword-searchable statewide digital newspaper repository. In September 2003, the library received a $1.02 million National Leadership Grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Brigham Young University made a significant contribution to the required matching funds. With this funding, an additional 240,000 pages was added.

    • In 2005–2011, UDN received three National Digital Newspaper Program grants from the National Endowment of Humanities (NEH). These grants combined for $1.08 million in funding and provided for the digitization of another 350,000 pages. This content can be found on the Library of Congress' site Chronicling America as well as on this website. UDN currently offers 6.3 million pages from 374 newspapers.
