The ABCs of Alphabets and Scripts in Academic Library Research Open Teaching Materials uri icon


  • This poster guides library users seeking non-English materials through optimized paths toward their materials through 4 cases based on their answers to two questions: 1) Do you know the exact title you need? 2) Do you speak the language of the materials you need? It provides guidance on transliteration, translation, and resources for conducting non-English research. The 4 cases represent an attempt at a contextually aware approach to meeting users' needs, toward a possible search experience that would be guided by automated tools.
