Harold B. Lee Library History in Your Attic collection

Harold B. Lee Library History in Your Attic collection

Dates: 2013-2016

The History in Your Attic project began as Pioneers in Your Attic in a group effort between the Utah Academic Library Consortium and the Mountain West Digital Library to document the pioneer history of Utah through digitization of personal manuscript materials of the residents of the state. The scope of the project broadened when very few of the materials were specific to the pioneers and now includes any materials from the 19th century through 1950. The objective of the project is to scan the materials, provide a copy of the digital files to the owner, and return the original content back to the owners. Dated 2013-2016.

Biographical / Historical

The Harold B. Lee Library (1973- ) is the library on the campus of Brigham Young University, and is responsible for providing students and the community with valuable resources for research, media projects, and personal use. The Harold B. Lee Library was aligned with Media Services under the Assistant Academic Vice President of Brigham Young University in 1973. In that same year, the J. Reuben Clark, Jr., Library was renamed the Harold B. Lee Library. Internally, the Harold B. Lee Library is managed by the library director, who is aided by an associate university librarian and assistant university librarians, who oversee divisions of the library. Directors have included Donald K. Nelson (1973-1980), Sterling J. Albrecht (1980-2002), Randy J. Olsen (2002-2009), Julene Butler (2010-2012), Scott Duvall (interim, 2012-2013), and Jennifer Paustenbaugh (2013- ). The library building was expanded in 1976 and 2000 and continues to provide students and faculty access to scholarly materials.
