Address/Telephone Directories from Montenegro
at the Library of Congress

Link to Former Yugoslavia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia. Cover of Montenegrin phone book

Most of the foreign telephone directories held by the Library of Congress are uncataloged, hence we have compiled this list of the directories from the country of Montenegro as a finding aid for our staff and patrons. These directories deal with Montenegro from every era. See also the finding aid for directories from Former Yugoslavia which may contain sections for towns from Montenegro. In addition to the uncataloged directories listed below, the Library also holds a handful that are cataloged and may be paged from the closed stacks using their call numbers. To locate these directories, search the online catalog using subject keywords such as "Yugoslavia" and "directories", or "Montenegro" and "directories," or the name of a city plus "directories". Besides just straight telephone directories, this kind of search yields business/address directories from Montenegro. The Library of Congress also has a 36-reel microfilm set of telephone directories entitled Telephone Directories from Former Yugoslavia, the contents of which are presented in the list below.

The finding aid, which represents our holdings as of February 2015, is arranged by country/republic, then by city, and then by the year prominently displayed on the cover of the piece, which may or may not be the actual date of publication (i.e., a directory will often have one year in large print on the cover, and a different, usually earlier, year of publication elsewhere). Directories that cover all of Montenegro appear first in the list. The type of directory is indicated by the words "residential", "organizational," or "both" for directories that include both business and private numbers.

Telephone directories for Montenegro are located in two possible places in the Library of Congress: Deck 5S of the closed stacks in the Adams Building or for the microfilm set, in the Microform Reading Room. For items in the closed stacks or the Microform Reading Room a reader must request the items by completing a call slip. The finding aid designates these two locations as MRR/GC or MicroRR. The call number of the microfilm set is 99/6071. All volumes held on Deck 5S are filed under Yugoslavia, not under Montenegro.

An explanation of the information found in the notes field of this guide is in order.

  •  All directories are in the Latin alphabet unless otherwise noted.
  •  In addition to an alphabetical arrangement by surname, business name, occupation or trade, many directories provide a numerical listing of entries arranged by phone number so it can be determined who held a particular number for a given year. This feature is indicated in the notes field with the words "Numerical index."
  •  Often in the notes field there will be a statement beginning with words such as "Stanje" followed by a date. This statement is taken either from the title page or title page verso and can be loosely translated as "the situation as of a given date". It merely offers more precise dating for the contents of the directory.

When looking for listings of smaller towns in Montenegro, keep in mind that most telephone directories from the country feature a main city, but also include listings for other towns in the telephone district. Therefore, one should consult a map to locate a large city nearest to the desired town and use the directories for the larger city. Regarding the microfilm set, a list of all localities covered on a reel appears at the very beginning of each reel.

Many of the directories from Montenegro include both organizational and residential listings mixed together. Until the early 1970s very few provided a separate "yellow pages" section, although many had a section of additional advertisements at the end.

Besides using printed telephone directories, a reader may find it helpful to use online directories available for free on the Internet. The telephone portal site Infobel External link provides a list of links for each European country including all of the countries that once were part of Former Yugoslavia.
