The Athletic Media Relations records (formerly known as Sports Information) include materials produced in the process of promoting and providing media access to University of Maryland men's and women's intercollegiate athletics teams. Print items produced include programs, posters, brochures, pamphlets, newsletters, recruiting materials, schedules, statistics, press releases, and media guides. The collection is also rich in photographic materials including prints, slides, and negatives, as well as audiovisual materials such as film, video, and audio tape. These materials include posed or staged images, live interviews, action shots, and game films. Some materials, including correspondence and financial records, reflect the internal operations of the Athletic Media Relations unit. The records also contain information on individual athletes, including personal files, biographies, and questionnaires. Lastly, the collection also consists of plaques, awards, and other memorabilia collected by the unit.
Athletic Media Relations actively transfers records to the University Archives, and this finding aid may not reflect the most recently added materials in this collection. For more information about the Athletic Media Relations records, please contact a staff member.
