UM Libraries - Locations and Hours
There are eight libraries in the University of Maryland system. Seven are at College Park, and one is at the Shady Grove Campus near Rockville.
Printing and Copying
You can pay for Printing and Copying in the Libraries in one of two ways:
- Open a Terrapin Express account online and use your University ID as your printing card. (Note: Terrapin Express can be used throughout campus, not just in the Libraries!)
- Purchase a Photocopy Card in the Libraries for $1.00
Off-Campus Access to Library Resources
Most databases, reference works, and e-journals are restricted to current students, faculty, and staff at the University of Maryland.
In order to access databases and online journals remotely, use ResearchPort. When prompted to select a campus, select the option for University of Maryland, College Park and then "Students, Faculty, and Staff". Then log in with your Directory ID, the same username you use for email and other campus services.
