    Specialized reference departments
    The Library also has collections of current and past paper and microfilm telephone directories of major cities around the country and around the world. Additionally, we have other finding aids to help you locate contact information.
         The Library also provides reference over the telephone 617-536-5400 and electronically.

    Email and Website addresses
    Most sites offering to find email address ask for a fee, so we do not recommend them here. The best way to find a company or organization's email address is to visit their website; the best way to find out a person's email address is to ask them for it.
