SAILOR RESEARCH DATABASES

Maryland’s public libraries share a collection of Internet-based research databases that are purchased through the Sailor database budget. This collection ensures all Maryland residents have equitable access to a core collection of research databases. This common collection anchors the broader collections of databases provided by the local library systems. You will find links to the Sailor funded databases on your local Maryland public library's website in the research/databases section.

Funding for Sailor Research Databases is provided by the State of Maryland through the annual State Library Resource Center grant to Enoch Pratt Free Library administered by Maryland State Library.  Use by Maryland residents is free of charge. The Database Review Committee, established by the Maryland Library Consortium, selects the Sailor database collection on behalf of Maryland libraries.  Purchasing is done by Enoch Pratt Free Library.

Every Marylander will find something that supports his or her information needs in this collection, whether the interest is personal, professional, recreational or educational.

Please visit your local library's website to see their complete collection of databases which includes the current collection of Sailor databases listed below.
