Trails to Utah and the Pacific: Diaries and Letters, 1846-1869

Building the Digital Collection

Brigham Young University and the Utah Academic Libraries Consortium received an award in the 1998/1999 round of the Library of Congress/Ameritech National Digital Library Competition to support the digitization of diaries and related material from a number of institutions and assembly into an online collection. The materials document journeys on overland trails to Utah and further west in the mid-nineteenth century, before the railroads transformed travel across the country.
