Barbara A. Matheson Special Collections: Digital Archives
From its spectacular Grand Staircase of cliffs and terraces, across the rugged Kaiparowits Plateau, to the wonders of the Escalante River Canyons, the Monument's size, resources, and remote character provide extraordinary opportunities for geologists, paleontologists, archeologists, historians, and biologists in scientific research, education, and exploration. That research is included in this collection in the form of published papers, theses, and oral histories.
The Bureau of Land Management funded the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument (GSENM) digital archive collection of oral histories and research documents. Grand Staircase-Escalante Partners (GSEP), a non-profit support group for GSENM, provided volunteers to develop this digital archive. GSENM's extensive collection of personal histories and research documents is now available to the public in a single repository. It is an ongoing project with much work still to be done. If you have questions about our research, the library, or are interested in volunteering on this project, please contact:
