UMD Archives receives official approval

The University of Maryland Archives is proud to announce that we have received official approval as a local archives from the Maryland State Archives.  Deputy State Archivist Timothy Baker noted in his letter granting the approval that the UMD Archives exceeds the requirements specified in the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR) for a local archives operation.  Standards we had to meet dealt with such topics as staffing, accessibility to the public, environmental conditions for document storage, security, fire protection, and provision of guides to our holdings.

We are delighted to have this recognition and deeply appreciate the trust and confidence placed in our work on behalf of the University of Maryland community.
