The author presents strategies any librarian or researcher with
access to OCLC WorldCat may use to answer many kinds of
questions concerning foreign-language materials in their own
or other libraries. These advanced searching strategies, some
not obvious and some even hidden in the WorldCat interface,
may also be used to help collection managers generate valuable
information about their library’s collection strengths in
specific languages, and by extension, make comparisons with
collections at other institutions. Special attention is devoted to
certain problems associated with Slavic and Eastern European
Geoff Husic (2017). "Using OCLC WorldCat Language Indexes to Quantify Slavic and Eurasian Language Collections and Answer Complex Bibliographic Questions." Slavic & East European Information Resources, 18:3-4 (2017), 109-127.
