Utah Digital Newspapers

Over the past year Archives staff assisted patrons in locating records as diverse as probate records, criminal case notes, and high school graduation records.  None of these were found in official documents, but rather in newspapers.

Utah Digital Newspapers is a project by the University of Utah’s Marriott Library to digitize the newspapers of Utah. Ranging from 1850-1970, UDN has complete papers from across the state, and is keyword searchable. This makes searching for a news item fast and easy.
