HKUST Library Pinyin Conversion Project

The HKUST Library is pleased to announce that the computer programs we have developed for converting the Wade-Giles romanization to Pinyin in our bibliographic records are now being offered for other libraries to use. The computer programs and detailed instructions can be found on the Library Web site at:

Along with the main conversion program, there are also a few useful utility programs, explanations on the rules used, and an account of our conversion project. We hope by sharing this information, our experiences will be of use to other libraries which are planning for their conversion.
