This Project is the means by which more CJK name authority records will be added to the NAF, and thereby increase the number of bibliographical records that can be used with little or no local editing. It offers an opportunity to institutions with East Asian materials to participate collectively, ultimately providing better standardized access to these collections. Members may be individual institutions which may otherwise not meet expected NACO contribution levels. This Project also affords the Council on East Asian Libraries (CEAL)'s cataloging community a forum in which they can interact with LC and other PCC members. It provides a voice for expressing opinions about cataloging policy and standard issues.
To become a member please download the CJK NACO Application and follow instructions, faxing the completed form to the Funnel Coordinator.
