The Emery County Progress has been digitized up to 1940. 

Suzanne Anderson from the Emery County Archives recently reported the digitization project is finished.The Emery County Archives, with the help of the Emery County, the Emery County Historical Society and Mountain West Digital Library has successfully digitized 20 more years of the Emery County Progress. You can now view issues of the Emery County Progress newspaper up to Sept. 27, 1940 online @digitalnewspapers.org.
“Special thanks to our Emery County Commissioners, Connie Jensen the Emery County Progress and the members of the Emery County Historical Society. Without their suppport and help this project could not have been done.
“Special thanks to Compliance Staffing and Guymon Machine for their generous contributions and the residents of Emery and Carbon counties for supporting our yard sale fund raiser,” said Anderson.
The Emery County Progress began publication in 1900 in Castle Dale, the county seat. The September 15, 1900 issue stated: “The publishers of The Progress have purchased from Mr. C. A. Hyde the printing material, presses and plant of the late Emery County Record, and perhaps with our next issue, at any rate not later than the first of October, will print The Progress at Castle Dale. It will take a week or 10 days to get the plant cleaned up and in shape to get out a paper. It is expected to have a man here in charge of the plant within the next few days, but it may be a week or 10 days. After the first of October we shall be prepared to do job work of all kinds, and solicit the patronage of all.” In 1957, the paper merged with the Green River Leader to become the Emery County Progress-Leader. In 1977 the name was changed back to Emery County Progress.
