The Cataloging Policy and Support Office has recently completed a project to add Chinese characters to the names of individual authors listed in PL2661-2979 in the Library of Congress Classification.  For most authors, both the traditional and simplified Chinese characters are provided in addition to the Romanized name.  As new authors are added in the future, both the Romanized and Chinese forms will be supplied.

CPSO gratefully acknowledges the generous assistance of James K. Lin, Liang-yuh Tang, and Chiun Kwan Chau, of the staff of the Harvard-Yenching Library, in completing this project.
