Vertical Files page logo

The Lincoln City Libraries maintains a collection of over 1300 clipping folders, known traditionally as our Vertical File Collection. These folders are all located In the basement Periodicals Room of our main headquarters -- Bennett Martin Public Library, 14th & "N" St. -- in downtown Lincoln, NE. This collection of clippings, primarily from the Lincoln newspapers from the 1930s through the 1990s, as well as a few other sources, focuses on the following topics: Lincoln, Lancaster Co. and Nebraska history.

Vertical File resources are part of our reference collection and must be used in the library only. Photocopiers are available in the Periodicals room for local researchers wishing to make copies. Long-distance researchers wishing to make use of our Reference-by-Mail [mail your request to the Reference Department, c/o the address in the paragraph above] or Reference-by-Email services, can have copies made of any documents in the Vertical Files. See the Reference-by-Email page for a list of possible fees.
