Telephone Directories

Dozens of online phone listings are available through a Google search.

The UCLA Library has very limited holdings in print and microform telephone directories. Recent directories for selected cities are available through Phonefiche. Selected specialized telephone directories can be found in the Library Catalog—search "telephone directories" as a Subject List.

More extensive collections of historical telephone directories are available in most public libraries.
