Cataloguing Arabic Literature

Our retro-conversion project is steaming ahead, getting all the old books onto OLIS so that people don’t have to use the card catalogue! James has now finished the Minor Islamic (Art, Music etc) JC-N and the Arabic Language & Literature PJ sections. There were just less than 4000 books, and almost 3000 were already on OLIS. 600 of the rest were in Oxford at other locations, 200 were unique to our library so needed to be catalogued from scratch and 100 were in Arabic and James couldn’t find a record for them so they need to wait for our Arabic specialist to catalogue.

Now there’s just Persian, Turkish and Hebrew to go (plus a few loose ends)!
