Vertical files tend to contain current information while others hold older, historical information. Vertical files are most often information about a given area, such as a county, city or state. The files are often organized in alphabetical order and provide reference librarians and others quick access to information, usually about quick reference questions. Items contained in a vertical file often include but are not limited to: newspaper clippings, obituaries, press releases, etc. Since almanacs are a resource material, they would be included.
