The ALA-LC Romanization tables for Slavic alphabets is a set of standards for romanization of texts in various writing systems used in North American libraries and publications. The latest version was published by the American Library Association & Library of Congress in 1997. This article is about the ALA-LC method of transliteration of Russian-language text from Cyrillic script to Latin script.

The formal, unambiguous version of the system requires some diacritics and two-letter tie characters which are often omitted in practice.

ALA-LC also publishes tables for the transliteration of many other languages.
