The Yellow Pages of the telephone directory is a good source of company names by type of business. In the UK, even local public libraries usually have most of the Yellow Pages for the entire country. A limitation of the use of the Yellow Pages should, however, be borne in mind. There is no quality control of the companies listed: a listed firm might be a one-man operation handled on a part-time basis. Many other business directories may also be found on library shelves in the reference section. For example, the Kompass Directories provide useful information on businesses and their products.
