The Maryland State Law Library

Digital Collections[edit | edit source]

The Maryland State Law Library has embarked on a program to digitize those printed Maryland materials that are both fairly unique to the Library and frequently used by legal researchers. In order to provide Library users with a state-of-the-art online document repository, the Library launched its Digital Collections database in November 2008, using the PTFS Archivalware platform.

Collections include:

  • Maryland Rules Committee Meeting Minutes & Agendas. Researchers now can search the full-text of more than 60 years of meeting materials to find mention of the adoption of specific rules.
  • Maryland Task Force Reports. These reports are often helpful sources of information used to determine legislative intent.
  • The Library has also added previously scanned copies of the Proceedings of the Maryland Judicial Conference. These reports, dating from 1947 to 1997, provide historical information on the work of the Judiciary.
