Vertical File Resources

 Deaf Biographical File

The Deaf Biographical File usually contains newspaper and magazine clippings, small pamphlets, pictures, and other miscellaneous material in folders. For some people,  this may be the only information available.  Works by a deaf individual or critiques of their work may be included in this subject's folder. (Located in the Deaf Stack area: to review materials ask for assistance from the Library Service Desk.)

Deaf Subject File

The Deaf Subject File has several "Poetry" folders, which are arranged alphabetically by the title of the poem.  Most of these poems are from the Buff and Blue (literary and newspaper issues).  If consultation is needed, contact the Archives.  (Located in the Deaf Stack area; to review materials ask for assistance from the Library Service Desk.)
