Typing in the Library
If you need to do extensive typing in a language other than English, consider checking out one of our laptops with the language bar already set up!
Just visit the Audio Visual Services desk in the basement of Young Library, and check out laptop 12, 13, 14 or 15 (availability expanding soon).
The laptop cases include basic instructions for switching languages and using the on-screen keyboard.
The University of Kentucky Libraries houses research materials in multiple languages within its collection. InfoKat, the University of Kentucky Libraries' catalog, has a function that allows users to limit their searches by language. Many of the databases allow the user to choose the language that is displayed in the search interface, and EBSCOhost even allows for the translation of articles in certain formats. This guide gives you an overview of how you can find resources in all languages. It is intended as a starting point for anyone wishing to use resources in languages other than English.
