  • Global Address List

    serch.it?q=Global-Address-List

    The Global Address List (GAL) is an electronic shared address book which contains usually all people of given organization (company, school etc.). This address book is accessed over the computer network using LDAP protocol, CardDAV or some other electronic means. The GAL is usually read-only for users. Only administrators add or update the items. Users can search it, look up other people (employees, students, members etc.) and obtain information such as their e-mail address, phone number, work position, and office location. A common usage of GAL is if the user is writing an e-mail, and knows the recipient's name, but doesn't know their e-mail address. The application, such as an e-mail client (e.g. SOGo, Zimbra or Thunderbird), can look up the e-mail address in the GAL while the user has written only a part of the recipient's name.

    A "white pages" telephone directory A telephone directory, also known as a telephone book, telephone address book, phone book, or the white/yellow pages, is a listing of telephone subscribers in a geographical area or subscribers to services provided by the organization that publishes the directory. Its purpose is to allow the telephone number of a subscriber identified by name and address to be found. The advent of the Internet and smartphones in the 21st century greatly reduced the need for a paper phone book. Some communities, such as Seattle and San Francisco, sought to ban their unsolicited distribution as wasteful, unwanted and harmful to the environment.
