Central Asia: Address and Telephone Directories

List of Directories

When looking for listings of smaller towns in the countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan, keep in mind that most telephone directories from these countries feature a main city, but also include listings for other towns in the telephone district. Therefore, a researcher should consult a map to locate a large city nearest to the desired town, and then use the directories for the larger city.

Telephone directories for Central Asia are located on Deck 5S of the closed stacks in the Adams Building, in the section for uncataloged international telephone directories. Researchers must request the items in the Main Reading Room by completing a call slip or asking in person in the European Reading Room. The finding aid designates the location as MRR/GC. All volumes held on Deck 5S are filed under the names of each country. There are no directories for Central Asia in the section for the Former Soviet Union.
