Repository code: upb
Repository description (CRHP): Repository holds several sets of interviews with African American Mormons across the United States, and with African Americans in Utah. Narrators address race relations and civil rights concerns in their home areas, within the state of Utah, and within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Repository description (extant): The L. Tom Perry Special Collections Library preserves and houses materials requiring regulation. Because of their uniqueness, value, or fragility, these materials are given great care to protect them from damage or theft and to ensure their proper long-term use.
Hence, Special Collections acquires, preserves, and makes available for use printed materials (280,000 books, pamphlets, prints, etc.) and a vast array of items comprising manuscript materials (8,000 manuscript collections including diaries, journals, papers, music scores, university records [including records of retired faculty], and 500,000 photographs).
Repository type: University Special Collection
