THE UTAH SKI ARCHIVES GROWS IN SIZE AND REPUTATION: ARCHIVES UPDATE The Utah Ski Archives was founded to document skiing's col- orful history through paper, film, and oral history, and in turn become a research and information resource. Although several new collections have been received this year, the receipt of any substantial collections will be postponed until the Manuscripts Division of Special Collections completes its move within the Marriott Library. The move, to take place during 1998, will pro- vide a significant increase in space for the Manuscripts Division which houses the Utah Ski Archives. Although the receipt of materials has been limited, the role of the Ski Archives as an information resource has expanded. This last year the reputation of the Archives grew as requests for infor- mation have covered a wider variety of topics and come from a growing number of sources. The demand for the film and video portions of the Archives has blossomed. Photographs continue to be in high demand. As the 2002 Olympics become closer, demand for information and matierials is sure to grow. The last few months have also seen requests for television and radio interviews. The increase in requests for information from the Archives and its growing reputation as a source for reliable information is exciting. Adding to that information base have been additional oral history interviews and several small collec- tions.
