Transliteration of Non-Latin Alphabets

In the Library Catalog, 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.
