Directories


Directories are organized electronic and print listings of contact information. The amount of information provided for each entry can range from brief to detailed. Directories can be organized in different ways, including alphabetically, geographically, or by subject. Many of the resources in this tutorial are electronic and print directories.

There are two types of directories: general and specialized.

General directories:

General directories provide brief contact information. For example, yellow and white page telephone books list contact names and addresses. Canpages.ca is an example of a print and an electronic directory. The Yellow Pages is an example of a print and an electronic directory.

Specialized directories:

Specialized directories provide more detailed information than general directories. For example, some business directories may list addresses, size, number of employees, scope of business or service, annual revenues and in some cases, much more. Scott’s Directories is an example of an electronic directory. Canadian Key Business Directory is an example of a print directory.
