The Giovale Library digital collections consist of digitized documents and photographs relating to the history of Westminster University from its inception as the Salt Lake Collegiate Institute, founded in 1875, to the present. The collections also include material dealing with the early history of the Presbyterian Church in Utah and southern Idaho. This is an ongoing project and new materials are being digitized and added to the collections on a regular basis.
All original materials are housed in the Masonic Foundation of Utah Archives Room in the Giovale Library, Westminster University. The original documents are available to researchers during library hours or by special appointment. Researchers should check in with the circulation desk on the main floor.
The digitized collections are divided into 2 groups. One group includes historical photographs from the collection and the other group is of historical documents such as The Church Review, Utah Westminster, and other published materials. Some issues of The Church Review are available for your perusal however, other historical documents are still being processed. Giovale Library hopes to have all of them up shortly. The library is presently in the process of organizing the archival collections and in time the collection descriptions and finding aids will be added to these digital collections.
