Vertical File Index

The Vertical File is a row of filing cabinets located on the south wall of the library.  Contained in each filing cabinet are individual folders filled with cataloged information.  Each folder is labeled with a subject heading and contains information representing only that subject or topic.  The folders are arranged in alphabetical order from the top of each filing cabinet to the bottom.  Typical information includes:

  • Pamphlets from organizations, associations, the federal and state government, & foundations.

  • News releases from local chambers of commerce.

  • State & local visitor information.

  • Annual reports of profit & nonprofit organizations.

  • Newspaper articles.

  • Magazine articles.
