Transliteration Alert

Transliteration systems are used to convert words from one writing system to another. Words written in non-Roman writing systems (e.g., Arabic, Russian, Hindi), may be transliterated into Roman letters in various ways. This can create problems when searching in a library catalog or database. Try variations to get better results. For example:

  • JMU Library Catalog: Qaddafi, Muammar
  • Historical Abstracts: Qadhafi, Muammar
  • CNN: Gadhafi, Moammar     
  • Al Jazeera: Gaddafi, Muammar     
  • ABC News: Kaddafi, Moammar
