The Kentucky Room vertical files contain a wide variety of materials which supplement the cataloged collection. These include pamphlets, newspaper clippings, brochures and other materials on Kentucky and Lexington which because of format or timeliness are inappropriate to catalog. Primary sources for the vertical files are the state’s two major daily newspapers, the Lexington Herald-Leader and the Louisville Courier-Journal. The files are divided into three sections:
- Kentucky Biographies
Each section is arranged alphabetically by subject and subject heading lists serve as guides to the collections.
