Search tips for finding Cyrillic info in library resources

CLIO and most library databases cannot represent the Cyrillic alphabet. Most Russian information, therefore, is represented in Roman characters. In order to find information in Russian, users must search in Roman characters using the same transliteration system. Most library resources in the United States use a scheme developed by the Library of Congress. To search Russian titles most effectively, use this Transliteration Standard. (For non-Roman languages other than Russian, see the ALA-LC Romanization Tables Index).
