Abstract

This research paper provides an overview on the latest developments of Chinese authority control work implemented in Mainland China, Taiwan, Japan, and Hong Kong. In this research, a variety of authority databases developed by different national libraries and leading academic institutions are featured, together with detailed statistical data on coverage, size, and subscription rates of individual databases. Authority record samples collected from individual databases are also documented. This research study provides materials for discussions that can generate an increased understanding of the practical manifestations of authority control works carried out by different libraries among the regions of East Asia. It is hoped that the research findings documented in this paper can facilitate better cooperative cataloguing and resource sharing of Chinese/Japanese/Korean (CJK) materials among libraries on a global scale.
