Library & Archival Collections

These institutions, libraries and archives house Mormon collections (materials about the Mormon religion or individual Mormons). Mormon collections may include references or documents related to Mormon women, embedded within men’s papers. Some Mormon collections are materials about or belonging to a Mormon woman, and perhaps housed in her name. Our goal is to list archives that have significant Mormon collections which contain materials about Mormon women, or specific women’s collections. We welcome information about any Mormon woman’s collections, here.
