Get More from the Library: Searching the catalog for non-roman scripts

A new feature of the Duke Libraries' online catalog makes it possible to search the catalog using non-roman scripts.  Use any computer in Perkins/Bostock to input Chinese (both traditional and simplified characters), Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Cyrillic, Hebrew and Devanagari scripts. Most of the catalog records in non-roman scripts are in Chinese, Japanese or Korean, but there are some in Arabic, Hebrew and Cyrillic, and more of these will be added in the future.   For more information on searching in specific languages, please contact a subject librarian, using the link at http://library.duke.edu/ias/iaslibrarians.html.  A good guide on searching using CJK scripts is available at http://hul.harvard.edu/ois/systems/aleph/docs/opac/cjkhelp.html
