Guide to the University Publications Collection

Please use this identifier to cite or link to this Subject Guide:

Table of Contents


The University Publications Collection consists of a wide variety of printed materials produced by and about the various administrative units, academic departments, student groups, and athletic teams on the College Park campus.

The collection is divided into categories primarily based on the office or group which created the materials, and all call numbers assigned to these categories begin with the letters UPUB. Some categories, e.g. Buildings and Grounds, Fraternities and Sororities, Student Organizations, and University of Maryland Affiliated Campuses have been further subdivided into specific units to facilitate easier access to these materials.

Category-level records representing each university publication call number are currently being entered into the UM Libraries' online catalog. Individual catalog records for many university publications are also in the catalog. All of these records may be located by doing a call number search beginning with the letters UPUB. You may also locate materials in the University Publications Collection by selecting the Advanced Search option in the catalog and limiting your search by "Named Collection" using the term "University Publications."

Much of the collection remains uncatalogued at present and most of the materials are not online and must be viewed in the Maryland Room; please contact the University Archives at 301-405-9058 or fill out an information request if you have an interest in the collection and cannot locate what you seek in the catalog.
