The Library is always pleased to consider inquiries regarding the donations of books and other materials appropriate for its collections. While we are grateful for such offers, the Library has limited storage capacity, which necessitates some prioritization.

- Email Reference
In conjunction with the Maryland Judiciary's "What Can I Do to Help You?" initiative, the Maryland State Law Library is standardizing reference services to address the distinction between the provision of legal information and the unauthorized practice of law. These Guidelines adhere to ethical requirements related to the practice of law, while emphasizing the need to provide Library users with in-depth reference service in order to make the most complete use of the Library's collections.
- Meeting Rooms
Due to its physical layout and shelving requirements, the Library does not have meeting rooms available for the public to reserve. Library patrons are welcome to use the tables and books in the Library's conference room for their research needs, with the expectation that other researchers may do the same.
