Welcome to the University of Maryland Libraries!

The graphic below is a quick introduction to how Teams and their Librarian work together, beginning late in the Team’s Freshman year.

Note that much of a Librarian’s work with their Teams occurs during their Sophomore year. However, depending on Team need, their Librarian may be a very active participant all the way through graduation. Find the right amount of involvement that works for you!
