Abstract
1997 saw fierce competition among the publishers of print, CD-ROM and online telephone directories in the USA. Considers whether it is worth buying any white pages CD-ROM now that such information is freely available over the Internet. compares 3 versions of the white pages information based on American Business Information (ABI) data: American Directory Assistance (Http://www.lookupusa.com); InfoSpace (http://www.infospace.com); and the 7-disc CD-ROM database PhoneSearch 3.0. Concludes that for casual use such as looking up names, the Web databases are much more efficient. The CD-ROM version may be better for those who regularly want to compile mailing lists and phone lists to target a district
