sec. 126A). The transfer of these records is now in process. In addi-
tion to these records the agency has in its custody the non-current
records of many State agencies, and microfilm copies of all deeds
through 1850 and all wills through 1950.

While the Board of Public Works alone has the authority to destroy
non-current records, all such records must first be offered to the
Hall of Records, and then, should the Archivist decline the records,
permission to destroy them may be sought from the Board of Public
Works. Provision has also been made for the periodic disposition of
certain non-current records upon a schedule arranged by the record
custodian and the Archivist. All such schedules must be approved by
the Board of Public Works. The original of any paper or document,
except those excluded by law, which has been microfilmed, photo-
stated, or reproduced by any other photographic method approved
by the Hall of Records may also be destroyed. In all instances the
record custodian must submit to the Archivist a listing of all records
which have been destroyed (Acts 1949, Chs. 518. 755). The Hall of
Records is authorized to reproduce photographically upon request the
records of any agency of the State government, as well as the land
records of any Court of the State upon the request of the Court (Code
1947, Supp. Art. 41, sec. 127).

The Hall of Records also maintains a library of official publications
of the various State agencies, and all State agencies are required to
deposit one copy of each official publication at the Hall of Records
(Code 1947 Supp., Art. 41, sec. 103). The Hall of Records is further
responsible for the editing and preparation of the MARYLAND
