Vertical Files Index: The University

Our Vertical Files is a collection of loose materials such as newspaper clippings, booklets, pamphlets, brochures, reports, or other types related to all things Louisiana. As the name suggests, these materials were historically stored in a vertical filing cabinet in folders arranged by category.

Our team is in the progress of digitization of this collection to preserve the fragile nature of these items. Indexes for this collection are available here. A number in brackets next to a category indicates files have been digitized.

The files are not available online. Visit the Louisiana Room to view the digital or physical version.
