Maryland folklife collections at UMBC

Beginning in 2013, the UMBC Special Collections department began a partnership with Maryland Traditions, the state folklife program that is a part of the Maryland State Arts Council. Part of this partnership has involved brining the records of Maryland Traditions, and its predecessor the Maryland Folklife Program, and related materials to UMBC. Special Collections staff and volunteers are currently working to process these collections. The collections are open and available to researchers in consultation with Special Collections staff. To learn more about the collections or to make an appointment to view the materials, please contact Archivist Lindsey Loeper at or 410-455-6290.
