Library Journal - Library Journal
This is the latest entry in the business telephone reference book sweepstakes, what the publisher describes as a ``compact, accessible, and timesaving directory.'' It contains company name; address; Standard Industrial Classification (SIC); sales, product, or service description; and up to 15 different telephone numbers for each entry. Phone numbers include: main office, personnel, sales, toll-free, FAX, consumer hotline, cable, and telex, but the average per business appears to be about six. Company selection comes from major published lists such as the Forbes 500 , Fortune 500 , Business Week 1000 , Corporate 1000 , Financial 1000 , and other unspecified titles. Unfortunately, many of what this reference terms ``leading'' businesses are not leading; they appear to be here as a result of an unexplained computer search strategy. Moreover, much of the data is available elsewhere in any number of existing business directories, including Ward's Business Directory and Million Dollar Directory annuals, and the latest FAX directories of the superior National Directory of Addresses and Telephone Numbers (an annual also distributed by this publisher at the same price). The personnel numbers might be useful for job-seekers, but this is strictly an optional purchase.-- Patrick J. Brunet, Univ. of Wisconsin Lib., La Crosse
Subtitled Key contact numbers for 10,000 leading business, this new alphabetical reference differs from others of its kind (which often offer only one contact route, e.g. a toll-free number) by providing up to 15 telecommunications listings in each corporate entry, many directed to specific departments and offices. Each entry also includes address and company description, with primary business activities, SIC codes, and sales figures when available. Indexed by geographic area and product/service. Annotation c.
