How to support this work

Newspaper digitization at Marriott Library is funded by federal and state grants, local matching funds, individual Utah libraries, and contributions from users like you. It is a freely-accessible, not-for-profit service dedicated to providing better access to Utah’s historical newspapers. Fees paid by our sponsors and gifts from donors are used for:

  • Newspaper-title research
  • Digitization of microfilm
  • Project management
  • Structural and technical metadata
  • Digital storage and web server fees
  • Preservation of digital content

You can also choose to fund the digitization of a specific run of a particular newspaper. If you or your organization are interested in digitizing a newspaper for this site, please contact us. We can research the newspaper and provide a quote for the costs of a small, medium or large project.
