Title: Multi-section retaining/sorting/browsing apparatus

Abstract: Multi-section retaining/sorting/browsing apparatus including a base defining at least one cavity and including a first plurality of parallel slots opening thereto and dividers arranged in connection with the base to define an object-retaining section between adjacent dividers. Each divider has an anchor portion arranged in the cavity and an object support portion coupled to the anchor portion and extending through a respective slot to provide a support for retaining objects. To retain the dividers in connection with the base, the anchor portion of each divider has a width larger than a width of the respective slot. The anchor portion is rotatable in the cavity to enable the divider to be flipped forward and backward in a longitudinal direction. When file folders or other objects are retained in the object-retaining sections, it becomes possible to sort papers, documents or files in the sections and to browse through the contents of a file folder without removing them from the apparatus.
