Address/Telephone Directories
from the Caucasus
at the Library of Congress


This is a finding aid for telephone directories from the countries of the Caucasus: Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia. It consists of over 20 entries representing the Library of Congress' uncataloged holdings of Soviet and post-Soviet era titles as of October 2008. It is arranged by country, then by city, and then by the year prominently displayed on the cover of the piece. Directories that cover the entire country appear first in the list. The type of directory is indicated by the words "residential", "organizational", or "both" for directories that include both business and private numbers. Most of the directories are in Russian, but several have parallel Russian/English titles and entries. The geographic names used in this list for all three countries reflect recent changes away from the former Soviet and/or Russian names.

In addition to the uncataloged directories listed below, the Library also holds a handful that are cataloged and may be paged from the closed stacks using their call numbers. To locate these directories, search the online catalog using subject keywords such as "Armenia" and "directories" or the name of a city plus "directories".

There are two possible locations for the uncataloged telephone directories in this list from the countries of the Caucasus: the closed stacks (directories are currently held on Deck 5S, Adams Building and Deck 36, Jefferson Building) and the open stacks of the Main Reading Room reference collection (Alcove 4, Deck 46). For items in the closed stacks a reader must request the books by completing a call slip; the other location is open to the public for browsing. The finding aid designates both locations as MRR/GC.

Besides using printed telephone directories, a reader may find it helpful to use online directories available for free on the Internet. A Russian telephone portal, Spravka.net External link, links to online directories in the Caucasus region by country or by city. Searching of these web sites generally will require the use of Cyrillic characters as well as some knowledge of the Russian language.

This finding aid was created by Angela Cannon. For further information concerning telephone directories from the countries of the Caucasus held by the Library of Congress, please contact any of the following:
