This guide contains information about the available resources for conducting research on the history of UMBC's origins, people, departments, and traditions:
Special Collections and the University Archives are great places to start when you begin any historical research. Special Collections staff are happy to help you locate the information that you're looking for and familiarize you with our holdings and services. This guide is meant to serve as an introduction but it should not discourage you from contacting Special Collections.
This guide includes references to resources that are available throughout UMBC and even off-campus. If you have a helpful resource that you think should be included, please contact Lindsey Loeper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
