Finding People

Local Resources

Central Library has a large collection of current telephone books from most of the cities in Indiana and the Tri-State area, and major cities in the rest of the United States. White pages give addresses and phone numbers for both residences and businesses; yellow pages can list types of business available in an area, and can also give additional pertinent information in their ads.

The Business Reference collection at Central Library has many directories of different types of businesses -- manufacturers, services, or organizations -- often providing additional information such as fax numbers, toll-free numbers, web site addresses, names of top officials, sales, or number of employees.

American Business Disc is a CD-ROM product available only at Central Library that offers information on nearly 12 million U.S. businesses. Besides searching by name or keyword in the name, you can search by products or service type; state, city, county, area code or zip code; size by sales volume or numbers of employees; public or non-public companies; or even yellow page ad size.

We also have many specialized directories giving addresses and phone numbers for specific subject areas such as: hospitals and physicians, colleges or schools, celebrities, libraries, chambers of commerce, newspapers, radio stations, state officials, campgrounds, toll-free numbers or nude beaches.
