Answer

InfoHawk+ allows you to search for the library collections by entering search terms in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Russian and some other languages.

To search by title in original script: select Browse search, "select the list to browse" "by title" enter search terms, for example, “中国历史” (in simplified Chinese, may also search by traditional Chinese), “風の歌を聴け” (in Japanese), “한국 사회” (in Korean, insert a space in between Korean words).

To search by title in Romanization: select Browse search, "select the list to browse," "by title", enter search terms, for example, “Zhongguo li shi” (in Chinese Romanization, Pinyin system), “Kaze no uta o kike” (in Japanese Romanization), “Han’guk sahoe” (in Korean Romanization, McCune-Reischauer system).

To search by author in original script: select Browse search, "select the list to browse," "by author", enter search terms,  “张贤亮” (in Chinese), and “宮沢賢治” (in Japanese). Korean is not currently working (8/15/16)

To search by author in Romanization: select Browse search, "select the list to browse," "by author", enter search terms, “Zhang, Xianliang” (in Chinese Romanization, Pinyin system), “Miyazawa, Kenji” (in Japanese Romanization), “Im, Sang-su” (in Korean Romanization, McCune-Reischauer system).
