The Special Collections Department of Langsdale Library at the University of Baltimore collects resources related to the making of the modern city of Baltimore. Our collections document the built environment, civic groups, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations from 20th century Baltimore City. Among our holdings are oral histories, photographs, architectural plans, and the papers of prominent Baltimore citizens.
All of our collections are available to the general public, as well to the University of Baltimore community.
