Description 2002 Olympic Games Files Enhance Ski Archives By Roy Webb and Kate Kimball Marriott Library Archivists Following the Olympic Winter Games of 2002, the addition of new collections to the Utah Ski Archives in Special Collections at the J. Willard Library at the University of Utah has been unprecedented. Not since its founding in 1989 have the collections grown at such a rapid rate - not only in size but in diversity and quality. Some of the new collections have been processed and are available for viewing at The staff at Special Collections appreciates the additions as they give researchers and others valuable insights into the evolution of winter sports in this region. This latest influx of collections includes thousands of historic photos, film footage, slides, digital scans and negatives from Ski Archives Advisory Board members, supporters and people who have heard about our program from various sources. In terms of size, the most imposing collection received includes tens of thousands of photos and audio-visual archives of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee for the Olympic Winter Games of 2002 (SLOC). The University of Utah was designated as repository for the papers prior to the Games. This collection is the largest housed at Marriott Library, comprising of some 50,000 images in 1,000 cartons and requiring 2,000 linear feet of shelf space. In a related addition, the library has received the Olympic Experience Collection submitted by faculty, staff and students of the University. This collection came about when, during the Games, library personnel requested photo donations from the University community. To date, the Ski Archives has received almost 6,000 images from 38 individuals. Also related to the Games is a collection of papers of ex-Salt Lake City Mayor Deedee Corradini that includes brochures, pamphlets, reports and Olympic Bid books. She was a member of the SLOC executive committee and a major player during Salt Lake City's bid efforts to host the Games. Still more Olympic Games front, the Ski Archives has received an addendum to the Mike Korologos Papers that includes the agreement making the U.'s Marriott library the repository for SLOC papers, a contract that he helped orchestrate. His newest papers also include media guides to National Olympic Teams from throughout the world and several publications pertaining to media coverage of the Games. The U.'s Sports Information Office, which houses major photo collections of various sports teams, allowed library personnel to copy numerous photos of the University of Utah's touted ski teams over several years. The library also is pleased to receive major collections from Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons. These offer an insight into the marketing and business side of the growth of skiing in the region.
