enactments, both in session law form and as statu-
tory compilations, are also filed in the Library
from almost every state, as are all federal and
some foreign statutes. The Library's legal periodi-
cal holdings includes 400 current subscriptions
from all the major law schools and many bar as-
sociations and commercial publishers. In addition,
there is a strong and growing collection of legal
texts and topical loose-leaf reporting services,
briefs and record extracts from the U. S. Supreme
Court and Maryland's appellate courts, along
with the other legal reference materials found in
most law libraries.

The State and federal government documents
holdings is a vast area of valuable information.
The Library has been a select U.S. Government
depository for federal agency and congressional
publications for many years. As a result, it has
collected and indexed thousands of reference pub-
lications in the area of social sciences, economics,
law enforcement, legislative histories, and numer-
ous other disciplines. The Library is also a deposi-
tory for all Maryland State agency publications
and contains one of the most complete retrospec-
tive collections of State government information
in Maryland. In addition, all county governments
must file copies of their codes with the State Law

A third distinct subject collection and a heavily-
used resource is the local history and genealogy

collection. This resource, which has been actively
developed over the years, complements much of
the original source records researchers have access
to in the State Archives and Maryland Historical
Society. Included among the holdings are the
Maryland census schedules from 1776 through
1910 with name indexes through 1850; a complete
and invaluable original file of the earlier issues of
the Maryland Gazette (1745-1838); a complete
run of the Baltimore Sun (1837 to date); and nu-
merous county histories, family genealogies, and
research guides.

Additional items of interest are the Library's
holdings of rare books, early Maryland maps and
documents, including the subscription edition of
James Audubon's four-volume elephant folio,
Birds of America. Also on display in the Library
are the classic lithograph prints of each of the offi-
cial state birds for thirty-five states and the Amer-
ican Bald Eagle, commissioned by the Nature So-
ciety and painted by Richard Sloane. The State
Law Library was designated as the official deposi-
tory for these prints by the Governor in 1970.

The Library publishes a quarterly list entitled
Recent Acquisitions, as well as miscellaneous bibli-
ographies and a descriptive brochure on the Li-
