The Library of Congress has digitized this directory; for a detailed description and a link to it see Online Romanian Directories at the Library of Congress.

Part II lists "Diverse Institutions" - religious, cultural, charities, schools, public assistance, hospitals, the press, societies, and circles and clubs. Part III, the largest section, covers commerce, industry, and the professions, including businesses, owners, professors, teachers, etc; it is preceded by a subject index in English, French, German and Romanian.

  • Volume II, 1924-25 (Provincia) covers the rest of Romania; its several sections have separate paginations, adding up to over 2,000 pages. It begins with Part IV, Provinces of the Old Kingdom (including Moldova). Part V concerns The New Roumanian Annexed Provinces - Bucovina, Transilvania, Banat, Crisana, Maramures, Basarabia.
