Scope and Content
These directories are produced to enhance communication among state agencies. The nature and focus of these directories have changed over time. Prior to 1959, what was called the "Branch Exchange of the Utah State Capitol," listed only the personnel and agencies located within the State Capitol building. Since then, the directories have listed the telephone numbers and addresses of all state agencies, and the telephone numbers and position title of all supervisors within each agency. The general personnel list may include all state employees for some years and may not for others. In addition, an agency index has been provided in each volume, since 1977; the home and office telephone numbers, and home mailing addresses of all state legislators, since 1986; a bomb threat call check list, since 1988; a motor pool shuttle schedule, since 1992; as well as a frequent requested numbers list, a county and local government prefix locator, and a telecommunications device for the deaf sub-directory in 1993.
Three directories were produced in 1982. The first one was published in April and was updated by one in May and another in September. The May publication included telephone use instructions, while the one in September included a general personnel listing.
Furthermore, a special directory concerning the offices and .personnel in the Heber Wells Building, was published in 1983. Since then, those personnel and offices have been included in the general telephone directory.
The directories were originally produced by the Secretary of State's office. This function had passed on to the Department of Finance by 1967, and then to the Division of Information Technology Services by 1982.
