|Title||UA 127 - University Archives Vertical Files|
|Subject||Intentionally gathered collection maintained by the University Archives with primarily newspaper clippings about various subjects, people, and buildings that have been part of the BGSU community.|
|Introduction||The Vertical Files collection complements the Publications collection (UA 117) and UA Photographs collection (UA 114). As a group, these three collections provide broad ranging information about the history of BGSU, its built environment, and some of the people who have spent time on its campus.|
Duplication of materials in this collection is permitted for the purposes of preservation and research. No restrictions exist on the use of this collection. As described in the Visiting Researcher Application Form, researchers using this collection assume full responsibility for conforming to the laws of libel, privacy, and copyright.
|Agency History||This collection was started based on files originally maintained by the BGSU Department of Marketing and Communications and received by the University Archives ca. 2015. It has been added to as news articles have appeared in local newspapers and as appropriate materials (such as obituaries and additional publicity) were found in other collections. It is anticipated that additions to this collection will occur on a regular basis.|
|Scope and Content||The Vertical Files are organized into three separate groupings - Subjects, Buildings and People. The bulk of the collection is made up of newspaper clippings, with some press releases, copies of remarks/speeches, and biographical summaries. In addition some of the Subject files also include photographs.|
Collection size: 8 legal-sized file cabinet drawers (16 cubic feet)
|Series Description||Series 1 - Subjects |
Series 2 - Buildings (complemented by UA 126 - Building Clipping Files).
Series 3 - People. Includes biographical information (from newspaper clippings, including obituaries) on individuals who were part of the BGSU faculty, administration, and staff as well as some distinguished visitors.
