Colleagues,

Please forgive duplication and forward this announcement as appropriate.  The final report of the ALCTS Non-English Access Working Group  on Romanization, submitted on Dec. 15, 2009, has now been released  online.

The Working Group was established by the ALCTS Non-English Access Steering Committee in June 2009 to examine the current use of  romanized data in bibliographic and authority records and to recommend whether romanization is still needed in bibliographic records.  The
Working Group would like to thank all who submitted comments on our draft report released in November.  This input from the wider cataloging  community was invaluable, and many of the comments received have been incorporated directly into the final report.
Robert Rendall
Chair, ALCTS Non-English Access Working Group on Romanization
