Librarians, curators, and archivists at the University of Maryland teach in every discipline and for each of the University's 12 colleges and schools. From classes and workshops to library tours, each offering is designed to help students and faculty reach their academic goals.


 We reach 12,000 students, faculty and researchers. This is what some of them said last year:

"The session was super helpful and very informative. Thank you so much for your assistance."

"Thank you for taking the time to familiarize us with the library resources and databases. It will certainly be helpful for the Gemstone project and any research in general."

"I am now aware of the difference between scholarly and popular sources and will take this into account when deciding whether or not an article will be useful to me."

"I am appreciative of the librarians' commitment to introducing ENGL 101 students to the rich amount of resources here at UM. The UMCP community, especially our first year students, is lucky to have such a dedicated staff at McKeldin Library."

"I appreciated your time and effort in developing a class website and orienting students to many resources. I loved your creative use of earthquake pictures to explain the librarian's role."

"I hope the university continues to use iPads to enhance the learning experience."

"I found this presentation extremely helpful. I had used the UMD databases before but only for a few easy topics. You have given me many more resources."
