Former Yugoslavia: Address and Telephone Directories

List of Directories

When looking for listings of smaller towns in former Yugoslavia, keep in mind that most telephone directories from the country 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. Regarding the microfilm sets, a list of all localities covered on a reel appears at the very beginning of each reel.

Telephone directories for former Yugoslavia are located in three possible places in the Library of Congress -- Deck 5S of the closed stacks in the Adams Building for uncataloged directories; -- in the Microform and Electronic Resources Center (MERC) for the titles in the microfilm set; or in the general collections for cataloged directories. For uncataloged items in the general collections or MERC, a researcher must request the items by completing a call slip. The finding aid designates these two locations as MRR/GC or MERC. All volumes held on Deck 5S are filed under Yugoslavia, not under the names of the subsequent countries.
