Dating from 1634 to the 1990s, records of Maryland State and local government are housed at the State Archives in the new Hall of Records building, Annapolis. The State Archives also holds special collections of maps, newspapers, photographs, government publications and reports, business records, records of religious denominations, and private papers. On the World Wide Web, electronic access to information about Maryland and its government also is available from the State Archives. Researchers also may use Maryland's Sailor network at local public libraries to reach the Archives.

Major collections of manuscript and published materials relating to Maryland also are held by the Maryland Historical Society and the Maryland Division of the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, and the libraries of Maryland's colleges and universities. Many federal government records are at the National Archives at College Park. The facility, known as Archives II, opened in May 1994.
