If you’re among the many fans of RefUSA for directory assistance, you’ll be happy to know that RefUSA has improved its service. Using Ref USA to find phone numbers and addresses has always been quick and easy. The coverage includes all of the U.S. and Canada. But the real power of this e-directory is for business people and job seekers who want to create a list of companies of a certain type, size, or location. The bad news was that, until recently, RefUSA allowed only about two records to be downloaded outside the library. The new improved service now allows 250 downloads per search. And that’s not the only change. Take a look! (Must have a 14-digit Northbrook library card to login).
