MDK12 Digital Library

MDK12 Digital Library logo 

The MDK12 Digital Library is a statewide purchasing consortium created to serve all 24 school districts and approximately 100 non-public schools that to date has saved the taxpayers of Maryland over $1.5+ million. The project has existed under state statute Section §7-9A-01 through §7-9A-05 Annotated Code of Maryland since 2009 and is housed at the MSDE.

For the 201​8​-1​9​ school year consortium members have access to negotiated pricing for digital content from over 25+ major providers including e-books and streaming video, and are all again subscribing statewide to a suite of ProQuest/SIRS databases. The MDK12 Digital Library leadership continues to work with public and academic libraries through the Maryland Library Consortium (MLC) to form a larger purchasing consortium. Working with the MLC, students across Maryland have access to an IP authenticated suite of EBSCO databases through the 2019 school year.
