The City Directory Super Library is Born!

In the spring of 2012, EDR acquired a collection of over 3,000 historical city directory books, many which are the only remaining copy and were set to be disposed of forever. We are scanning and preserving these important historical records for future generations, while bringing information on past property use to environmental consultants more quickly than ever before. Watch what happens when 3,000 books arrive at EDR headquarters in Milford, CT. All hands on deck!


EDR Customers are already receiving their city directories more quickly now that we have so many records in-house. Adding these books to our existing digital collection and our researcher network around the country make EDR’s City Directory Super Library the most comprehensive collection in the country. And best of all, more enhancements are coming soon as we get closer and closer to “instant” delivery of historical records.
