Tips for Searching Russian Names in the Online Catalog

 Be aware that transliteration from the Russian cyrillic alphabet to the roman alphabet can render a person's name or a work's title in several different ways. In general, we use the Library of Congress transliteration table but often, especially with well known authors or artists, exception is made so that a popularly accepted spelling is used (for example, we use Vladimir Mayakovsky, instead of Vladimir Maiakovskii).
