Abstract
Cataloging of materials in Arabic, Turkish, Persian, and related lannuanes presents numerous soecial difficulties. The author discusses-in aet&l problems presenied by the languages and scripts and their romanizations. He also deals with different calendar systems used in the Middle East and with representative problems in Library of Congress classification of Middle Eastern materials. The Middle East cataloger must be aware of and deal with these and 0ther problems on a daily basis. Library administrators, heads of technical services and catalog departments, and other catalogers also need to be aware of the particular difficulties that Middle East catalogers face.
