This guide is an overview of primary sources available for labor history and workplace studies on the University of Maryland campus. 

The George Meany Memorial AFL-CIO Archive is one of our valuable resources for research on this topic. Included in this guide are a number of subject guides and indexes for portions of this collection.

Please note, some of these indexes and guides were prepared many years ago and may not be up-to-date.
