The Collection

The Maryland Department should be your first stop for researching any topic that is related to Maryland or the people, places and events that have occurred in the state. Since 1934 the Maryland Department staff has been collecting and organizing books and other types of material on every subject as long as the information is about Maryland.  History, genealogy, politics and law, biography, religion, transportation, education, social issues, literature, sports, the arts-every topic A to Z.
