Predefined searches in the Foreign Section's Recent Collection (1950-2007), Danish Section's New Collection and in KUB-collection (2008-).
Below is a list of predefined REX searches. The results can be further refined through the options in the left side of the results page or by entering more information in the search fields at the top of the results page.
The REX searches are as comprehensive as possible and as a result there can be a lot of excess and less relevant hits. The reason for this is that the subject codes used may not match the categories precicely or that subject codes from other classification systems may interfere. It may also be that relevant titles are not included in the search, which is mostly the case with books from the Recent Collection (1950-1979) when classification codes were not included in all bibliographic records.
REX usually uses the ISO-standard for translitteration for the CATALOGUING and DISPLAY of materials published in the Cyrillic alphabet.
Examples of ISO-transliteration: Šajtanov (Шайтанов), Čudakov (Чудаков), Mandel'štam (Мандельштам), Dostoevskij (Достоевский), žizn' (жизнь), Zoščenko (Зощенко), Chruščëv (Хрущёв).
Exception: Books that are currently in order may be transliterated according to other systems. However, when they enter The Royal Library collection, they will be changed to the ISO-standard.
When SEARCHING in REX, the English/American transliteration is used. I.e. Shajtanov, Chudakov, Mandelshtam, Dostoevskij, Zhizn, Zoshchenko, Chrushchev.
