Library 0.1

Discovered while looking for good source of Armenian-language bibliographic data (from in the Russian National Library).

Is your catalog online? Yes, our catalog is online.

Actually, the sad thing is, having scans of all the catalog cards isn't THAT much worse than today's online catalog systems (OPACs). Anyway, at least I can link to the page and assume the link will work an hour from now.

Well, now we know how William Saroyan's name is written in Russian. A silver lining...

I wonder if there's any OCR software that recognizes Armenian?

(Well look at that.)

Though I can't read a word of it, I can at least recognize the alphabet -- Armenian is the second-commonest language on signs in my neighborhood in Pasadena, between English and Spanish.
