Abstract

While books and periodicals dominate the collections of most libraries, they do have a poor second cousin. Pamphlets and vertical file material have worth and value to a library no matter what that library's size, function, or type but this value may not always be recognized. A primary source of information on many pamphlets and vertical filelike material is the Vertical File Index hereafter sometimes referred to as the VFI or the index, a selection and collectionbuilding tool in existence for over fifty years. While the index does include references to items like Baby Shower Fun, Turn to Sandwiches, and Versatile Vinegar, it is not replete with such items.
