The Maryland State Archives is the repository for the permanent records of Maryland state, county and municipal government, including government reports and other publications. In addition to Maryland government records, our holdings include a Library of Marylandia and Special Collections of broad scope, such as newspapers, manuscripts and private papers, maps, church records, and an extensive art collection.
Field Study (year round): The Maryland State Archives strongly believes in supporting future professionals in the library and archive fields. We have a number of departments that can work with iSchool students, in both library and archive-based programs. We can work with students to tailor a field study to a potential interest or students can choose from a pre-identified need within the archives. Students could work on one or more of the following subjects: appraisal, reference, cataloging, processing, arrangement and description, conservation and preservation, digitization, digital curation, collection development.
Paid summer internships are offered to teach archival records management, historical research methods, librarianship, conservation and museum studies. Throughout the year, the Archives offers student internships for academic or community service credit.
