Audio-Visual Archive

Bill Langton, Al Londema, O.L. "Brig" Tapp 

The Audio-Visual Archive is located on the Fourth Floor and is part of the Multimedia division of Special Collections.  We are a repository for unique moving image and sound material from Utah and the West. 

Our collections include:

  • Student and independent films
  • Oral histories
  • Home movies
  • Local news, sports and radio programs
  • And many other rare and fascinating materials representative of the region's rich cultural and social history!

We are constantly working to make more of this vast and ever growing resource available digitally to students and the public for viewing, research and other artistic purposes.  A number of collections already have finding aids or clips available online.

Although many items are copyrighted, many others are available for use in student and commercial audio and video productions. The staff in the Multimedia Archives digitizes items and provides them to patrons on CDs and DVDs to help preserve the sensitive originals. 

Drop in, give us a call, email, or chat and let us help you with your research!
