Sample text

Continuing immigration of people from other countries created a language problem as well as a cultural absorption problem. Therefore libraries were obliged to cater to the needs of the immigrants who spoke different languages and who had lived under various cultural conditions. One of these needs was for books in many languages that were written in a variety of alphabets. As a result, separate catalogs were used to satisfy the linguistically diverse library-using public. The source of the Israeli standalone tradition (as opposed to the reasons for the tradition, discussed above) can be traced back to the Jewish National and University Library, which is indeed the source of most of Israel's cataloging traditions and policies.

However, Israel's problem transcribing foreign names into its alphabet are unlike China's problem with its ideographic alphabet. Converting the roman-alphabet (which is literal) into Hebrew (which is consonantal) is difficult, but not as difficult as converting roman into Chinese (which is ideographic). 35 In short, Hebrew is simply not a good "receiving" alphabet, and this accounts for one of the major reasons for its tradition of maintaining separate catalogs for separate alphabets instead of a unified catalog of headings in its native alphabet.
