deposited annually with the State Archives by the
Department of Legislative Reference (Code 1957,
Art. 23A, sec. 17C).

is a reference collection which focuses on works that
supplement the holdings of the State Archives.
These include published records and sources on
Maryland history, government biography, geogra-
phy, and natural resources; county, city and town
histories; regional studies; Chesapeake Bay; re-
search guides; genealogies; and archives admini-
stration, conservation, and preservation.

sources (DNR) was transferred to the State Ar-
chives in June 1987. The DNR Library includes
materials collected since 1942 on Maryland natural
resources, wildlife, fisheries, forestry, water re-
sources, and the environment.
