Directions from the airport

Parking at the J. Willard Marriott Library:
The Library's address is 295 S 1500 E, SLC UT 84112. Click here for Directions to the Library.
While you can park in any visitor lot on campus, we recommend the lot near the library’s west entrance/campus bookstore. Campus visitor lots no longer have attendants and require advance payment at an automated kiosk.
As part of your registration, we will generate a payment code for you that the kiosk will accept. After you park, you will need to take note of your car’s license plate number, then find the nearest kiosk to enter the parking information.
This will be provided before the conference.


Day 1 - MWDL Hubs Only Meeting. Agenda Day 1
This meeting provides an opportunity for MWDL’s hosting hubs to work towards realizing the collaborative vision of maximizing public access and connecting people with digitized primary source materials.

Day 2 - MWDL Digitization Community Day. Agenda Day 2
This meeting provides the community an opportunity to participate in, and learn about best practices, challenges, and workflows for digitization and preservation, and the impact of this work on the community at large. Learn what it takes to engage people that have a common interest in genealogy, research, history, and more!

Conference proceedings will be hosted and published on custom electronic journal platform (using Open Journal System administered by Marriott Library), with permission from presenters.
