2012-11-30 The Phone Books Are Just Mocking Us Now ... 8 years ago
The Phone Books Are Just Mocking Us Now which reminded me that the library in the Hogeschool I worked 1993-2000 had the shelf with the entire set of phonebooks of the Netherlands replaced by a sign 'look it up on the website'.

But the publisher of the phonebooks in the Netherlands has only started this year (2012) to ask whether you are interested in the paper phonebook. And according to the article above some phonebook publishers are taking even longer.
