For Librarians

The Thurgood Marshall State Law Library understands that libraries from all kinds of institutions play a pivotal role in the provision of information services. While most requests can be met at the local level, larger libraries such as the Library may contain the materials to better respond to unique information requests. Our team is well-prepared to help colleagues meet the information needs of their patrons through both informal guidance and convenient services.

Librarians from many institutions may benefit directly from popular Library services:

  • Phone and email reference assistance
  • Speedy document delivery, including transmission of PDF scans by email and quick payment via MasterCard or Visa
  • Interlibrary lending via OCLC
  • Remote Z39.50 access to the Library's catalog
  • Access to Maryland state agency publications in digital format via the library catalog
