University Unit Authority Project

This site includes authority control information about Brigham Young University administrative units from the time of its founding in 1903 to the present. Current work is focused on academic units within the university, though it is hoped that this will eventually be extended to non-teaching divisions.

Information held in these unit records includes:

  • Authorized forms of names
  • Variant names
  • Location associations
  • Dates of establishment
  • Dates of abolishment
  • Description of functions
  • Administrative structure
  • Administrative histories
  • Relationships with other units
  • Associated archival materials
  • Sources of information

Data gathered through this project will be the foundation of standard library and archival authority records, which will be completed as the headings are needed.

If any information found in the records is in error, please contact the site administrator, Cory Nimer, at
