The Policy and Standards Division of the Library of Congress has received a revision proposal for the Belarusian ALA-LC romanization table from the ACRL Slavic and East European Section Committee on Automated Bibliographic Control. The proposal aims to bring the Belarusian ALA-LC romanization table in accordance with the modern standard Belarusian language, and also to support an expansion of the table by the inclusion of letters that are considered obsolete but which nonetheless occur in older Belarusian publications.
The revision proposal http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/roman_belarusian_proposal_120517.pdf [PDF, 117 KB] highlights all additions and changes. A separate document http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/roman_belarusian_proposal_explanation.pdf [PDF, 280 KB] enumerates changes in the revision proposal.
