Gaylord Resource Center

The Gaylord Resource Center Library provides a quiet space for students to conduct research and includes several desktop workstations, a study carrel, and tables for group study. Its holdings include a wide range of journalism-related texts donated by students, faculty, staff, and alumni. The collection is catalogued online using LibraryThing.com.

The Resource Center Library also houses bound copies of dissertations and theses completed by Merrill alumni.

The Resource Center, located on the first floor of Knight Hall, is available to all members of the campus community. Its collection is non-circulating and alphabatized by author (tho Library of Congress (LOC) order is also retained).

We are working on a system so students may check books out. Students and guests are requested to re-shelve all texts in the order in which they have found them, as the Resource Center Library is unstaffed. Please do not bring food or drink into the Library.

The College of Journalism's Research Subject Specialist, Maggie Saponaro, holds office hours on Wednesdays from 10:00-11:30 a.m. during the fall semester between September 25th and December 11th. All students are invited to visit her during office hours, or may set up an alternate appointment time by contacting her at msaponar@umd.edu.
