What criteria are used to decide who is listed in each directory?
The Daily Newspapers section of the Year Book includes information on all Daily Newspapers publishing in the U.S. and Canada. A Daily Newspaper is defined as a newspaper that publishes at least 4 times per week. All other sections of the directory: Weekly Newspapers (publish 1-3 times per week), Sales Representatives, Equipment Companies, Associations, etc. are included as we are able to identify them. No other requirements needed for inclusion. Obviously, companies must be appropriate to each category.

Is there any limit to the amount of names and addresses I can download?
The maximum number of search results that can be displayed online is approximately 5,000 records. If your search result exceeds this number, then not all records will be available on line at one time. You can view the first 5,000 records, download the complete results of your search, or further refine your search.
BACK TO TOP

Why can't I find a particular Newspaper?
The Year Book contains all publishing Daily Newspapers in the U.S. and Canada. One possibility may be the search criteria are too specific. For instance a search where Newspaper Name = "New York Daily News" would result in no matches. However, a search for Newspaper Name = Daily News and City = New York results in 7 matches including the New York Daily News. For Weekly Newspapers and other types of organizations the same rule applies. However, we do not have 100% coverage in other areas; either because we are unaware of the publication/company, or they have failed to respond to our research requests.

Can I send an email to the companies from your site?
Yes. Both the email addresses and web addresses are active in the documents displayed. Click on the email address and a message form will appear with the address field pre-populated. Also clicking on the URL of the website will open up the site in a new window.
