About Digital Exhibits from the UB Special Collections and Archives

The University of Baltimore Special Collections & Archives aims to provide access to our Baltimore history collections for researchers near and far. Baltimore's 20th century history is complex and many of our collections document the different events, people, and organizations that helped shape the city and region today. This site features selected items from just a few of our collections. Please enjoy learning more about the people, places, and history of Baltimore!

The Special Collections & Archives features selected items from the collections in these online exhibits. Each digital exhibit includes a description and selected digitized items. By selecting a digital item and then selecting it's collection, the user can access the collection information. The collection entries and each item entry in this site include Dublin Core (DC) metadata used to describe materials and provide additional information. Each digital collection includes a description, additional information about the collection, and links to the finding aid for the physical archival collection at the UB Special Collections & Archives. You can also access our finding aids database here!
