Post-Pinyin Conversion Cleanup Project Motivated by 2003 OCLC CJK Users Group Pinyin Report PY and WG mixed records were scanned out for review and update PPCCP Phase 1 is on-going with many Input-by institutions PPCCP Phase 2 work by re-scan of WorldCat for Batchloaded records having no access to OCLC CJK software and for uncovered records by Phase 1 Analyze holdings of scanned records and sort Held-by institutions Very difficult to find extra time for PPCCP work OCLC and libraries users need your expertise and support. We need your help!

CJK Technical Update CJK database scan continues to detect invalid EACC scripts use. OCLC will ask the inputting institution to correct errors Use of parallel record is becoming popular with the non-English language of cataloging code in 040 field. CJK records, however, are facing constraints using the 880 alternate graphic representation field associated with the roman transliteration data field. No hybrid record should be created Solution: 1) Input master records by complying with the OCLC MARC standards. Perform local editing to meet local needs before export Solution: 2) Import local version of records to CJK software file. Edit and make it the master record version before update into WorldCat
CJK Technical Update CJK NACO members who are using CatME or Passport for authority record work should be aware the Save term will expire in 90 days, instead of 180 days. Resave or submit NACO records before they are deleted. CJK users are granted to hold enhance for books regular mode to enhance roman-only member records with CJK scripts. OCLC encourages CJK users to add CJK scripts in routine workflow. Mark For CJK Use in Access & Authorization request form for quick and smooth processing. Member library can lock, edit, and replace non-authenticated serial records (no 042 field present) that have 10 or fewer holdings attached. Use 952 field and submit not only error report but also change request if you cannot replace records.
