CATALOGING POLICY AND SUPPORT OFFICE


CHINESE CONVENTIONAL PLACE NAMES

The Library of Congress is beginning the process of revising the Chinese place names currently established in a conventional English-language form to the form used by the United States Board on Geographic Names. This process began in August 1998 when the Library conducted a pilot project to test the feasibility of making these changes. The Library is now ready to proceed with the other names it has identified for change. This list will appear in Cataloging Service Bulletin, no. 83, Winter 1999. The list consists primarily of the provinces and the provincial capitals and other major cities.

In general the change will be made to the name authority record for the geographic name as the beginning point. Once that change is made, all new cataloging should use that form, whether being used as an entry element, a qualifier, or a subdivision. Once the geographic name has been revised, the Library will then revise the authority records on which that name has been used as entry element or qualifier. The intent is to post on this page those main headings that have been changed and the status of the changes made to other authority records that have used that heading.

These changes are being made before the Library converts from the Wade-Giles system of romanization for Chinese to pinyin because many of the forms used for these geographic headings cannot be converted easily by machine manipulation since they are not systematically romanized from Wade-Giles. Others represent a policy decision that precludes automatic conversion.
