With increased research collaboration among scholarly communities, ILL departments are encountering requests for foreign language materials on a daily basis. Verifying, searching, and locating foreign language materials at local, national, and international levels can be challenging for ILL professionals in the field. 

The proposed hands-on workshop will provide strategies and tools for working with foreign language materials. Transliteration systems, integrated catalogs, and online indexing tools will be discussed. Participants will be given an ILL toolkit.
