LILRC Webinar: Vertical Files Demystified

June 8 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

What is a vertical file?  Simply put, it is a filing cabinet with folders dedicated to people, places, events, and other topics relating to a community.  It is the first stop for a librarian or archivist to send a researcher with questions about a popular subject.  The Society of American Archivists defines it as, “an example of an artificial collection.”

This workshop is for anyone who wants to begin a vertical file for their organization and for those looking to organize an existing one.  Nicole Menchise, LILRC Digitization and Archives Coordinator, will go step-by-step through the process of weeding, sorting, organizing files and cataloging archival materials.  A workflow will be discussed and shared with the attendees.
