||Historic Photos Need Identification! ft jfSMHflBl Through the hard work of the Utah skiing community, the Ski Archives Advisory Board, and the J. Wilkrd Marriott Library Special Collections staff, the Utah Ski Archives has become one of the most comprehensive collections of its kind in the world. We now have over 50,000 images (10,000 of which are online on our web site), as well as thousands of feet of film, that document the history of skiing in Utah and the Intermountain region. The embarrassment of riches has led to a problem common to photograph archives, namely that many of the photos are unidentified. The Utah Ski Archives Advisory Board and the staff of the Special Collections department at the Marriott Library would like to ask the Utah ski community to help us put names and dates on these faces and events. You can help in several ways: • you can spread the word to your skiing friends that this help is needed; • you can help identify the images yourself, or SuzY Rittin9 Photo Collection • you can join the Ski Archives History Committee that will come to the library and look through the images to identify them. If you are interested in being a part of this project, contact Barbara Amidon, Chair of the Ski Archives Advisory Board at 801-328-6971. Of course, you don't have to belong to the committee to come in and look through the collections. Visitors are welcome at any time. The Special Collections Department hours are Monday - Thursday, 8AM to 8PM; Friday 8AM to 5PM; and Saturdays 9AM to 5PM. The unidentified images can also be viewed from any home computer. Log on to the Photograph Archives website at http://www.lib.utah.edu/spc/photo. The Ski Archives photo collections are grouped numerically starting with P0370 and continuing to P0424; and start again at P0900. So it's easiest to use the Numeric Index on the front page to start browsing through the Ski Archives collections. At the "Wasatch National Forest Skiing - P0370" page, for instance, click on the "BROWSE PHOTOS" link to be connected to the image database. Once there you can click on individual thumbnails to view a larger image. If you find an unidentified photograph and know who it is, or where or when it was taken, note the "File Name" the photograph; it will look something like this: p0370nl_2_05_12.jpg That's the number we need to identify the individual image. Make a list of those numbers and identities or locations, and send it to the Multimedia Archivist at the address given below. We'll see that your contributions are added to the database and at last, that unidentified photograph will have a name. If you have any questions about this process, or have trouble finding the web page, call the Multimedia Archives at (801) 585-3073, or send an email to Roy Webb, Multimedia Archivist, at roy.webb@library.Utah.edu. -¦ ;' : ;,>:,v.
