The George Sutherland Archives collects and makes available materials that document and reflect the history and development of Utah Valley University and the surrounding communities.

Using the Archives

The Sutherland Archives makes collections available for research to the campus community and the public at large. Access to archival materials is with assistance of Archives staff only. Items in the Sutherland Archives do not circulate like other Library materials, but photocopies of documents or scanned images of photographs can be obtained by request, usually within 24 hours. Holdings information for materials in the Archives is available through the Fulton Library's online catalog. For more information regarding items contained in our collections or any other archives-related questions, please contact us.

  • • The history of Utah Valley University
    • Professional or personal manuscripts, publications, and papers of current and former UVU administrators, faculty, staff, and notable alumni or area residents
    • UVU students’ theses or other faculty-reviewed projects or other publications
    • The secular history of local cities, particularly Orem, Lindon, Vineyard, and surrounding communities (limited)

We focus on collecting the following types of items that fit within the stated collection scope:

Please note: We are not actively collecting rare books and other rare items that do not fit our scope.


We do not scan or digitize any personal materials or campus-related materials that are not part of our own archival collections. The Fulton Library provides scanners in the Information Commons on the 1st Floor, and there are Info Commons Lab Assistants to help give guidance. Faculty can contact the Office of Teaching and Learning (x8255) for possible assistance with scanning campus-related materials.
