The Briscoe Center for American History maintains ready reference files of printed resources on an extensive variety of local and regional topics which span decades. The Vertical Files can include but are not limited to newspaper articles, magazine articles, promotional materials, pamphlets, maps, and ephemera. Although the Vertical Files (VF) are not a comprehensive source of information on any topic, they are good places to start for general information on research topics.
