Directories are good sources for locating names, addresses and telephone numbers.   You can use them to locate information on specific people and organizations, or use them to identify the existence of people or organizations in a particular field.  This guide will help you to identify a suitable directory for locating the information you need.  Included here are directories listing firms and agencies that may provide career opportunities in particular occupational areas, directories providing information about politicians, their backgrounds and the way they have voted on important issues, and directories listing the names and addresses of international organizations, among many others.  John Jay Library has directories covering a wide range of subjects, although directories relating to criminal justice predominate.   

The dates of publication of the works listed in this guide represent John Jay library holdings as of March 1997.  If you are using this guide subsequent to this date, check the library catalog (DPAC ) for a later edition of the work you wish to consult.  Many of these directories are updated annually or biennially.  Some, however, are one time only publications that may have been financed by a particular grant.  These tend to be non-commercially viable publications covering subject matter of limited interest to the general public, and may never be revised or updated.  Some of the older publications listed here are of this type.  Although old, they are included due to the unique nature of their subject matter.  When using directories that are more than five to ten years old, check to see if the organizations listed there that are of interest to you are still in existence.  Even if the organization is still in existence, the address and the phone numbers may have changed.

The guide is divided into sections according to subject matter.  Each section is sub-divided geographically into organizations and people within the United States, and organizations that are  foreign or international in scope.  Within each subdivision, the directories are arranged roughly according to importance and general usefulness.  The most current and the most comprehensive directories are found towards the start of the sub-division.  The directories that are more limited in scope, e.g., that are limited to a certain geographic area, or are limited in scope to aspect of the subject matter, are listed towards the end of the sub-division.

This guide is organized into sections as follows:

1       Associations
2       Criminal Justice
3       Law enforcement
4       Corrections
5       Probation and parole
6       Forensic science
7       Fire science
