Each entry includes publisher's main address and telephone number; order address; prepayment requirement; discount policy; return policy; shipping and billing policy; back order policy; and standing order/approval plans. For many publishers, the new 1995 edition includes e-mail addresses for orders and correspondence, addresses for accepting electronic orders, and the availability of publications catalogs through a computer network such as the Internet or Bitnet.
