Romanization tables for Bulgarian, Serbian, and Macedonian

CC:DA needs to examine and approve these Romanization tables in response to this announcement by PSD. Please take a moment to examine them in order to approve them after the constituency review, which ends in July. See the announcement below from PSD.

Proposal for Revision of the Bulgarian, Serbian, and Macedonian Romanization Tables

The Policy and Standards Division of the Library of Congress has received revision proposals for the Bulgarian and the Serbian and Macedonian ALA-LC romanization tables from Dr. Nikolay Valkov of Harvard University. The Bulgarian proposal corrects several minor typographical errors and adds language that clarifies the romanization of the Bulgarian letter Ъ. The Serbian and Macedonian table has historically combined romanization for these two languages. Serbian and Macedonian are two separate languages that use similar alphabets. It is proposed that each have a separate ALA-LC romanization table.

The revision proposals are available for downloading; Bulgarian  [PDF, 99 KB], Macedonian [PDF, 88 KB], and Serbian  [PDF, 85 KB].

Comments on these proposals may be sent to Bruce Johnson, Policy and Standards Division (bjoh@loc.gov) by July 11, 2013.

CC:DA Task Force on Place Names in RDA

CC:DA/TF/Place Names/1
March 5, 2013

Formed: Feb. 25 2013
Suspended: Nov. 2013
Submitted: oral report (Annual 2013); oral update (Midwinter 2014)


The Task Force on the Recording of Place Names is charged with continuing CC:DA’s work in clarifying and suggesting revisions to RDA’s instructions on recording the names of places, with the ultimate goal of making these instructions conform to RDA’s goals of 1) creating an international standard and 2) presenting bibliographic information as machine-actionable data. With that in mind, the Task Force will explore, among other options:

  • Removing the requirement to record larger places from the instructions for recording preferred and variant forms of names;
  • Adding instructions for creating authorized and variant access points of places;
  • Creating separate instructions for an element called Name of Larger Place in chapter 16;
  • Alternately, creating a relationship element of Larger/Smaller Place.

The Task Force will submit an interim report at Midwinter 2014 and will deliver a final revision proposal at Annual 2014, to be submitted to the JSC for their Fall 2014 meeting.
