From the University of Utah:

The Utah Digital Newspapers (UDN) is an online archive in high demand.

Founded in 2002 by the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah, the digital archive contains historic newspapers from across the state. And the archive has recently experienced a growth spurt with the addition of 130,000 pages from 11 Utah newspapers, including content from four rural newspapers new to the digital archive.

Various issues of the Brigham City Bugler (1891-1895), the Gunnison Valley News (1909-1935), the Milford/Beaver County News (1916-1946) and the Mt. Pleasant Pyramid (1912-1950) are now accessible, along with a total of 150,000 plus issues contained in 1.5 million pages of historic Utah newspapers that make up the Utah Digital Newspapers.

Salt Lake City Tribune

This recent digitization push also increased the digital holdings of The Salt Lake Tribune. The years spanning 1914 through 1919 have been added – valuable and interesting issues from the WWI era. These additional years bring The Salt Lake Tribune’s digitized pages total to 175,000 covering the years 1871-1919.
