In an average year, University of Maryland Libraries' 65 faculty librarians teach information literacy skills to more than 20,000 students. These skills ensure students can navigate their way through the complex scholarly resources necessary to conduct important research that benefits our community and contributes to developing human knowledge. These resources include more than 350 databases, 500,000 e-journals, 6 million e-books, and many other information resources essential for teaching, learning, and research. All of these resources are made available, and managed by, UMD faculty librarians and staff.
Gifts to the Collections and Content Enrichment Fund support the ongoing need for these critical resources necessary for research and teaching.
