Currently there are eleven officially recognized regional repositories throughout the state. The regional repositories are authorized to collect, process, preserve and make available historical records for research and study by the public. The State Archives can provide copies of government records to these Regional Repositories so people don’t have to travel to Salt Lake City to see government records for their region. Working together with institutions throughout the state, the Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board is committed to preserving Utah’s historical records for future generations.
On March 30, 2017 representatives of these repositories will be meeting at the Utah State Archives to learn, exchange ideas, and plan for the future of the program as this is the 10th anniversary for this meeting. The USHRAB Consortium is also invited to this meeting.
