New Uzbek Romanization Table Approved
The ALA-LC Romanization tables are developed jointly by the Library of Congress
(LC) and the American Library Association (ALA). Romanization schemes enable
the cataloging of foreign language materials. Romanized cataloging in turn
supports circulation, acquisitions, serials check-in, shelflisting, shelving,
and reference, particularly in library catalogs that are unable to display
non-roman alphabet information.
The ALCTS Committee on Cataloging: Asian and African Materials (CC:AAM)
recently received and reviewed a proposal for a new Uzbek romanization table.
The new table has subsequently been approved.
The new Uzbek romanization table
http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/romanization/uzbek.pdf is now available for
downloading from the ALA-LC Romanization Tables webpage
http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/roman.html . With the approval of the Uzbek
table, the Uzbek section of the Non-Slavic Languages (in Cyrillic Script) has
been removed from the latter table. An updated version of the Non-Slavic
Languages (in Cyrillic Script) romanization table
http://www.loc.gov/catdir/cpso/romanization/nonslav.pdf has also been posted to
the ALA-LC Romanization Tables webpage.
Please direct any questions about romanization tables to Bruce Johnson, LC
Policy and Standards Division (b...@loc.gov<mailto:b...@loc.gov>).
