Cox, Lynn, and Zinkham, Helena. "Picture Research at the Maryland Historical Society: A Guide to the Sources." Maryland Historical Magazine 76 (Spring 1981): 1-21.
Annotation / Notes: Although the collection descriptions are out-dated, this work still serves as a good introduction for newcomers to picture research. It provides a good overview of the wide range of sources which can be used to locate visual resources in a museum and library setting and provides eight basic questions to consider when preparing for a picture research trip.
McCauley, Lois B.Maryland Historical Prints, 1752 to 1889: A Selection from the Robert G. Merrick Collection Maryland Historical Society and Other Maryland Collections. Baltimore: Maryland Historical Society, 1975.
Annotation / Notes: McCauley's is the major reference point for anyone researching Maryland prints. It is well illustrated, with descriptive text. This is as close as one comes to a union catalog for Maryland prints. This work should also be of interest to anyone seeking pre-photographic images of Maryland sites, as well as to map historians.
McCauley, Lois B.The Official Museum Directory. Washington, DC: American Association of Museums, 1971-.
Annotation / Notes: This guide has been published yearly since 1971. The American Association of Museums is the museum world's major professional organization, although it is oriented more towards large wealthy institutions.
