Romanization of Arabic

If you are not familiar with Arabic alphabet and do not know how to romanize Arabic script, you can use the LC Arabic Romanization scheme. Romanization/Latinization of Arabic is the representation of the Arabic language with the Latin script. There are several different Arabic romanization schemes exist, but Marriott Library, like other libraries in the North America and UK, uses the ALA-LC transliteration tables of the Library of Congress for different Middle Eastern languages.
