The vertical file is an eclectic accumulation of thousands of miscellaneous items that document the life of Southeast Asian American communities. Here can be found information on a wide range of topics such as cultural events, pertinent issues of the day, organizations and businesses, student activities, local politics, health concerns, and family relations. Types of material include newspaper clippings, magazine and journal articles, unpublished student and conference papers, ephemeral items such as brochures, posters, flyers, event programs, and periodicals in English and Southeast Asian languages. California sources are best represented in the clippings file, but newspaper articles from other parts of the United States are included, as well as limited items from international papers.
