Unicode in the Main Catalog
Princeton's Main Catalog database is now Unicode compliant. The latest edition of the Voyager integrated library system software greatly improves the display of Chinese, Japanese and Korean characters. Displays of records in other languages which use special diacritics for their romanized transliterated forms, such as Arabic and Hebrew, are also improved. However, the "print, save or email" option offered in the catalog does not maintain these characters. To print catalog records, it is suggested that users employ the print capability of their browser or copy and paste into a Unicode-compliant program, such as Microsoft Office for Windows.
When using your own computer to view the Main Catalog, some adjustment to local settings may be necessary, e.g. to designate the Arial Unicode MS font as the display default. [See complete instructions at
Users of EndNote can download CJK records from the catalog and retain the Unicode characters. [See instructions at http://library.princeton.edu/help/en8utf8.php].
