The records of Athletic Media Relations (formerly known as Sports Information) include materials produced in the process of promoting and providing media access to University of Maryland men's and women's intercollegiate athletics teams. Print items produced include programs, posters, brochures, pamphlets, newsletters, recruiting materials, schedules, statistics, press releases, and media guides. The collection is also rich in photographic materials including prints, slides, and negatives, as well as audiovisual materials such as film, video, and audio tape. These materials include posed or staged images, live interviews, action shots, and game films.
