Procedural Guidelines for Proposed New or Revised Romanization Tables

News from LC.
I am pleased to report that the "Procedural Guidelines for Proposed New or Revised Romanization Tables" is now available on the LC website at These guidelines were developed jointly by the Policy and Standards Division at the Library of Congress, the Committee on Cataloging: Description and Access (CC:DA) and the Committee on Cataloging: Asian and African Materials (CC:AAM) within the Cataloging and Classification Section of the American Library Association. The need for a formal procedure became apparent in recent efforts to revise certain Romanization tables. A draft was issued on June 15, 2010, with a request for feedback. The current procedure, dated August 13, 2010, is the result of that feedback and was printed in Cataloging Service Bulletin Issue 127 (PDF, 289 KB).
