Carolyn,

"For some reason I have a hard time when entering search terms for
directories in library catalog databases and OCLC."

The Library of Congress Subject heading for City Directories for Los
Angeles should be:
Los Angeles (Calif.) Directories.

In general, it should be the name of the city, abbreviation for state in
parentheses, followed by the word "Directories."

I'm a librarian, but not a cataloger. If someone else knows better the
inticacies of the subdivisions, I would defer to them.

Best,

James
