The Library has completed negotiations with an external service to provide catalog records for our Arabic language materials, enabling us to add records for these materials to our catalog for the first time. By outsourcing cataloging to Arabic language experts, the library will be able to make information about our growing collection in this important area of study available to the scholarly community.
While the materials are out being cataloged, temporary records will appear in Acorn. Requests for the materials during that time will be saved until their return. We anticipate a two month turn-around for each shipment.
