"The ongoing Maryland State Archives publication series, Archives of Maryland Online, currently provides access to over 471,000 historical documents that form the constitutional, legal, legislative, judicial, and administrative basis of Maryland's government. Online access enables users to research such topics as Maryland's constitutions and constitutional conventions' proceedings, session laws, proceedings of the General Assembly, governors' papers, and military records. This project allows the Archives to place into electronic form and preserve for future generations records that are scattered among a number of repositories and that often exist only on rapidly disintegrating paper."
Sponsored by the Carroll County Public Library, the Carroll County Times Archive provides access to digitized copies of The Carroll County Times from 1911-2018. The database allows for full-text keyword searching as well as the ability to browse issues by date.
"Columbia is a well-known example of the New Town Movement in the United States. Though it shares similarities with other planned communities like Reston (Virginia) and The Woodlands ( Texas), Columbia’s innovative approach to planning puts it in a league of its own. A six-month period of interdisciplinary meetings (also know as the Work Group) brought together experts in education, recreation, sociology, transportation and religion, as well as architects and engineers, to weigh in on ways to better its would-be residents’ quality of life. Columbia was also ahead of its time for the purposeful goal to be an integrated community at a time before the Fair Housing Act of 1968 made it illegal to discriminate in housing based on race, color, national origin or religion."
