Prince Frederick Library

The College of Southern Maryland Libraries serve the information needs of students, faculty, and staff for research, teaching, class projects, and independent study. Visit a location that is convenient to you:

Student on a computer

Most materials can be renewed online. The due date will be extended for the same amount of time as the original check out period. For instance, if the materials were due in 3 days when you checked them out, then we will extend the check-out due date for three days. Students with materials due at the end of a semester cannot renew past the last day of the semester online; they must renew the materials in person. If you request a renewal that is not possible for any reason you will be contacted by Library staff.

Through Interlibrary Loan (ILL), we can order almost any book, periodical article, or ERIC document that the CSM Library does not own.

The Southern Maryland Studies Center (SMSC) was founded in 1976 to provide a central location for research on this historically important region. Students, historians, genealogists, and community members use SMSC's resources to study the culture and development of Charles, Calvert, St. Mary's, and southern areas of Anne Arundel and Prince George's counties. Visitors will find a variety of materials for historical, cultural, and genealogical research. Learn more on the SMSC website.
