The Maryland History and Culture Bibliography database contains the bibliographic entries that are published in the annual “Maryland History and Culture Bibliography” in the Maryland Historical Magazine. The first bibliography was published in 1973, and therefore, the bulk of works cited in this database are from 1973 to the present. The database does include some works published prior to 1973, some as early as the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, though coverage is spotty. New entries are added to the database annually, following the publication of the print bibliography.
The compilers of the bibliography are: Dorothy M. Brown and Richard R. Duncan (1973), Richard J. Cox (1974-1982), William LeFurgy and Peter H. Curtis (1983-1986), Anne S. K. Turkos and Peter H. Curtis (1987-1991), Anne S. K. Turkos and Jeff Korman (1992-2013), Anne S. K. Turkos and Elizabeth Caringola (2013-2022), and Anne S. K. Turkos and Joni Floyd (2023- ).
The Maryland History and Culture Bibliography database was originally created by the Maryland Humanities Council in 2000. Annotations were added to select citations as part of that project. The University of Maryland Libraries assumed responsibility for the continued upkeep of the database in 2008.
This database does not contain links to electronic articles hosted by the University of Maryland Libraries, although some may be available online. Not all titles are available in print at the University of Maryland Libraries. Contact Special Collections and University Archives for assistance in obtaining copies of any of the articles cited in the bibliography.
