Core Collection List for Maryland Circuit Court Libraries

The Core Collection List is a guide for Maryland circuit court law libraries in the assessment and acquisition of materials to meet the Maryland County Public Law Library Standards (CMCLLD, adopted June 2009). The list is helpful for librarians (law and general) and researchers in identifying useful materials, particularly when working in an unfamiliar area of the law. Learn more and access the list.
