This guideline aids in the selection and application of a filing system that will enable users to retrieve information.  It describes three principal systems: alphabetic filing, subject filing, and numeric filing. In addition, it contains standard rules for indexing alphabetic data.

This publication establishes a uniform file classification system while identifying and preserving a set order of records. Three informative appendices include instructions for indexing, factors to consider when using automated indexing systems, and exceptions for alphabetic indexing.

This consolidated guideline replaces the Alphabetic Filing Rules, Filing Procedures, Numeric Filing, and Subject Filing, all of which are now out of print and no longer available.
