Transliteration of Non-Latin Alphabets

In the University of Chicago online catalog and LENS, in WorldCat and many other databases, as well as the online catalogs of most other North American research libraries, Cyrillic alphabets are transliterated into Latin characters using the Library of Congress transliteration tables, which vary slightly from language to language.  Even though there are many transliteration schemes available, to obtain accurate and complete search results when using these databases, you must use Library of Congress transliteration.


Slavic, East European & Eurasian Studies Collections at the University of Chicago Library

The Slavic and East European collections contain over 588,500 volumes on Russia and the Soviet Union, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, as well as the countries of Eastern Europe, including Albania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia and Macedonia. The collections, which are accessed through the Library's Horizon Catalog and LENS browser, include material from all disciplines of the humanities and social sciences and in all of the vernacular languages of these geographic areas. The collections are especially strong in Slavic philology and linguistics, Russian and other Slavic literatures, history, economics, political science, geography, and the history of religions. The Slavic Reference Collection, numbering over 7,500 volumes, is located at the east end of the Second Floor Reading Room (RR2S), and includes a wide selection of specialized bibliographies, dictionaries, encyclopedias, serial indexes, library catalogs, archival guides and other research aids.



As part of the general reconfiguration of the Regenstein reading rooms, the Slavic Reference Collection has been moved. It is now located in the eastern section of the 4th Floor Reading Room of Regenstein Library (a change from its previous location in the front center aisle). The 2nd and 3rd floor reading rooms now house a General Reference Collection in one A-Z Library of Congress classification (a merging of the various Humanities and Social Sciences reference materials previously located in reading rooms 2-5). Call numbers A-L of general reference will locate in the Second Floor Reading Room and call numbers M-Z will locate in the Third Floor Reading Room.


As part of the general reconfiguration of the Regenstein bookstacks, materials classified in D (World History) are now, for the first time, located together in one sequence in the 2nd Floor Bookstacks. This includes:


DAW    (History of Central Europe)

DB        (History of Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austro-Hungarian Empire)

DF        (History of Ancient & Modern Greece)

DK        (History of Russia/Soviet Union and former Soviet Republics; History of Poland)

DJK       (History of Eastern Europe)

DR       (History of the Balkans, Bulgaria, Albania, Romania; Yugoslav successor states)
