Cait (tigercait) | 5005 comments Yeah, that happens a lot; they're listed that way on the Amazon or B&N entry too. I don't think that they're standardized enough for the GR importer to parse out that information when the records are imported, so librarians just have to remove that from the titles and put it in the language fields.

Mounir | 26 comments I found a lot of similar entries of books in Arabic with the title transliterated to latin letters. I was just wondering how these books were added and by whom. In this bizarre way nobody can benefit from them, neither english speakers nor the speakers of the original language of the book.
