Definition

Information about the conversion of romanized Chinese data from the Wade-Giles to the Pinyin romanization schemes. Field 987 has been defined for local use by the participants in the Pinyin Conversion Project. It has been implemented by the local library systems of the Library of Congress, OCLC, RLG and others.

Field 987 may be either system-supplied or originate from manual input.

If manually input, add field 987 to all records that contain romanized Chinese data using the Pinyin romanization scheme. If a record contains field 987, that record will not be converted by a conversion program. Adding field 987 to a record, therefore, eliminates the potential for erroneous conversion.
