    Ok.... I would like to add 1300 contacts from my school to the address book.

    I have people listed like this that I can copy and paste

    Jonathan (Jon) Doe '09
    H: (123) 456-7890

    and then a list of everyones email / a link next to their name

    I need to add these to address book. how should I do that. It would be nice to have e-mail, but that might be too hard

    If you have access to Excel, then, based on the following from Address Book's built in help:

    What sounds easiest is to create a tab-delimited file with the appropriate header row. You can have any of the fields you want, but you have to format it before you put it in Address Book. So I think Excel would probably be the easiest way to accomplish that.
