Cataloging such materials can be bewildering when the cataloger must face the challenges of identifying the language, creating bilingual catalog systems, or cataloging by names in languages with entirely different naming systems. Languages of the World is invaluable as a resource of practical solutions for cataloging specific languages or groups of languages, and it has much advice for helping patrons locate materials in languages other than their own.
Catalogers will find specific and practical advice for dealing with field recordings in Native American languages, Chinese legal materials, materials in Icelandic languages, African languages, Middle Eastern Languages, Central Asian languages, and languages of India and the Pacific. Some of the cataloging methods covered in Languages of the World include using archives and manuscript control formats to provide access to a large collection of Spanish materials, using the PA schedule for cataloging the literature of classical antiquity, the advantages and disadvantages of vernacular versus transliterated Hebrew, and cooperative cataloging from the point of view of a Southeast Asian bibliographer.

Catalogers at all levels of expertise will learn much from chapters that discuss:
