Inventory of United States Telephone Directories

The Library of Congress makes available to the public an extensive collection of United States telephone, city and reverse telephone (crisscross) and street address directories for the United States and many foreign countries in many different formats. For more information on how to access these collections, consult Telephone and City Directories in the Library of Congress: a Finding Guide.

The inventory below, organized by state, details the available directories by city/town and year. Telephone directories for many U.S. cities and towns from 1976 through 1995 can be accessed through Phonefiche, a ProQuest microfiche product housed in the Microform Reading Room (LJ 139B). Pre-1976 directories for fourteen states (Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Iowa, Maryland, Pennsylvania), the District of Columbia, and the city of Chicago have been microfilmed by the Library of Congress and can only be requested in the Microform Reading Room. Telephone directories for New York City and the surrounding area published from 1878-1959 can be accessed through the self-service microfilm collection in the Microform Reading Room.

Directories for each state are alphabetized by the primary city/town, which is noted in bold text throughout the inventory. Secondary cities, towns, and localities are also included. Many directories include listings for nearby communities that may not be listed within the inventory. The White Pages and the Yellow Pages are indicated as WP and YP respectively.
