LDS Church History Library
This Church History Library was designed to house the Church's unique historical collection. The Library provides a resource for those who wish to learn more about Latter-day Saint history and will allow researchers to enjoy expanded, more comfortable research facilities and enhanced access to the collection.
Focusing on materials that relate to the history and ongoing developement of the LDS Church, the collection includes 3.5 million manuscripts, 210,000 publications, 100,000 photographs, and 50,000 audio-visual productions in a variety of media formats. Consuming over 18,500 linear feet of shelving, the collection also demands precise environmental control systems to reduce airborne pollutants, regulate relative humidity, and maintain specific temperatures.
Located on a prominent corner of the Campus, the new five-story Library is designed to visually complement its neighbors while providing a unique identity for the collection.
