Choice Review

In its 9th edition, this excellent directory lists 17,086 entries (with some duplication of entries that relate to each other). Much of its information (sometimes even more extensive) can be found in other print sources (e.g., Encyclopedia of Associations, 2001) and a variety of subscription databases (e.g., Gale Business Resources, CH, Oct'98). This directory is valuable because it pulls together thousands of resources in one book that smaller libraries (public, academic, and special) can afford. The directory is arranged into 98 industry groups including agriculture, banking, graphic design, mining, travel, and wholesale services. Although its coverage is not comprehensive, it is an excellent stepping stone to further information on industries and services (industrial to high-tech) and covers the main professional organizations, major trade shows, newsletters, magazines, databases, and Web sites. Information can be found easily through the table of contents, the SIC cross-reference table, the publisher index, or the alphabetical index. Entries, numbered sequentially, list basic contact information (name, address, telephone, fax), and many include brief descriptions, e-mail, and Web addresses. Also available as a fully searchable online database, this useful source would have greatest value to corporate business libraries but is also useful to public libraries serving business clientele and academic libraries supporting business programs.
