© The Church History Library and Archives
The Church History Library and Archives house an extensive collection of materials related to the history and development of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, opened to the public in 2009. The library and archives replace the former LDS Church library building, which was housed within the Church Office Building's east wing. Today, the library's collections preserve significant materials related to the church's founding and the westward expansion of the United States, including more than 270,000 volumes, 500,000 historic photographs and maps, and 23,000 audiovisual items. Local LDS Church histories are also collected, along with church member patriarchal blessings. Visitors can explore the 230,000-square-foot building daily for free and utilize public research services such as the Mormon Pioneer Overland Trail Database, the world's most complete listing of LDS pioneers in the 19th century.
