Vertical Files

Vertical files are a collection of loose materials such as newspaper clippings, booklets, pamphlets, brochures, reports, or other types. As the name suggests, these materials are stored in a vertical filing cabinet in folders arranged by category. Digitized versions of these files are available here.

Note: The digitalization of this collection is a work in progress in alphabetical order by index. Most Louisiana General categories starting with 'C' and beyond may not have digital versions yet, but some do. Louisiana Biographies and The University categories have some files digitized. Look for a number in the brackets next to the category. Visit the Louisiana Room to view any categories with missing vertical files. Once digitized, the vertical file will no longer be available to view in the Louisiana Room.
