Design/methodology/approach-- Analysis of current name authorities in digital resources, particularly in digital repositories, and analysis of some features of existing repository applications. Findings-- This paper finds that the variations of authors' names have negatively affected the retrieval capability of digital repositories. Two possible solutions include using composite identifiers that combine author name, publication date, and author affiliation, and also asking authors to input the variants of their name, if any, at the time of depositing articles. Originality/value-- This is the first time that the approach of authors self-depositing their name variations is proposed. This approach will be able to reduce confusions in name identification.

13 Hickey, Thomas B.; Toves, Jenny; O'Neill, Edward T. NACO normalization: a detailed examination of the authority file comparison rules. In: Library Resources & Technical Services; Jul 2006, Vol. 50 Issue 3, pp. 166-172, 7p Abstract: Normalization rules are essential for interoperability between bibliographic systems. In the process of working with Name Authority Cooperative Program (NACO) authority files to match records with Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) and developing the Faceted Application of Subject Terminology (FAST) subject heading schema, the authors found inconsistencies in independently created NACO normalization implementations. Investigating these, the authors found ambiguities in the NACO standard that need resolution, and came to conclusions on how the procedure could be simplified with little impact on matching headings. To encourage others to test their software for compliance with the current rules, the authors have established a Web site that has test files and interactive services showing their current implementation.

12 Ruiz-Pérez, R.; Delgado López-Cózar, E.; Jiménez-Contreras, E. Spanish personal name variations in national and international biomedical databases: implications for information retrieval and bibliometric studies. In: Journal of the Medical Library Association; October 2002, Vol. 90 Issue 4, p. 411-430, 20p,; Abstract: Reports a study aimed at investigating how Spanish names are handled by national and international databases and at identifying mistakes that can undermine the usefulness of these databases for locating and retrieving works by Spanish authors. Reviews 172 articles published by authors from the University of Granada Medical School from 1987-1996, and analyzes the variations in how each of their names was indexed in Science Citation Index (SCI), Medline, and Índice Médico Español (IME). The number and types of variants that appeared for each author's name were recorded and compared across databases to identify inconsistencies in indexing practices. Examines the relationship between variability (number of variants of an author's name) and productivity (number of items the name was associated with as an author), the consequences for retrieval of information, and the most frequent indexing structures used for Spanish names. Results show that retrievability on the basis of author's name is poor in all three databases. Each database uses accurate indexing methods, but the methods fail to result in consistency or coherence for specific entries. Likely causes of inconsistency include: (1) use by authors of variants of their names during their publication careers; (2) lack of authority control in all three databases; (3) the use of an inappropriate indexing method for Spanish names in SCI; (4) authors' inconsistent behaviors; and (5) possible editorial interventions by some journals. Offers some suggestions for averting the proliferation of author name variants in the databases. Publisher's URL: Author Affiliations: Universidad de Granada, E-18071.

11 Ruiz-Pérez, R. Consequences for applying cataloguing codes for author entries to the Spanish National Library online catalogs. In: Cataloging & classification quarterly; 2001, Vol. 32 Issue 3, p31-55, 25p Abstract: Reports on an empirical study of a sample of catalog records which investigates the implications for information retrieval of the rules for choosing author access points in online catalogs. Aims to obtain data that can be used to inform a revision of current cataloging rules and to propose more functional criteria aimed at improving the retrieval of information located on the basis of author names. Examines 838 records from the Spanish National Library to analyze the use of authorities as access points, classifying authors as creative or non-creative to facilitate the analysis of author source location, potential author access points, actual entries used in the record, and loss of potential entry points. Finds that a significant proportion of potential access points from the table of contents and the title page went unused. If access points from these sources were used, author indexes would be more complete and accurate, and retrieval with online catalogs would be more efficient. Suggests that losses for creative authors result from neglect of the table of contents as a source of entries, strict application of the rule of three, and other specific factors, and that losses for non-creative authors stem from ambiguities and gaps in current cataloging rules for choosing added author entries. Concludes that the results support the urgent need to revise cataloging rules for author access points to make them more flexible, more practical, and more in line with actual responsibility functions and types of authorship.

9 Lau, Sh.; Wang, V. Chinese personal names and titles: problems in cataloging and retrieval. In: Cataloging & classification quarterly; 1991, Vol. 13 Issue 2, pp. 45-65, 21p Abstract: The increasing availability of Chinese language materials and other materials of Chinese authorship in North American libraries are posing major complications for cataloging which lead to retrieval problems, as exemplified by Chinese personal names and titles in this study. These complications include: the intricate nature of the Chinese script along with the extensive use of the traditional and simplified Chinese characters, and the application of variant romanization schemes, including Pinyin. Proposed solutions to improve access to Chinese language materials include: providing more access points in Pinyin form, establishing standards for international practice in romanizing Chinese personal names and in publishing the order of the family and given names of all authors, and linking cataloging authority files with OPACs.

7 Strunk, K. Control of personal names. In: Cataloging & classification quarterly; 1991, Vol. 14, Issue 2, p63-79, 17p Abstract: This investigation deals with control of personal names occurring in Danish books catalogued according to the Danish version of AACR2. A systematic sample was taken from 'The Danish national bibliography. Books. The five year list' and examined to determine how often documents with form problems in personal names occur, and, to reveal how personal names distribute on types of form problems. The results show that the most frequent problem is that names are not sufficient for identification, and that theoretically more interesting problems such as names not written in the Roman alphabet or several names used by the same author occur more seldom.

In: Journal of library & information science (03633640); Oct 1981, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p152-160, 9p Abstract: This paper has two purposes. First it reports the results of a little experiment to test whether or not the first volume of the Chinese Character Code for Information Interchange (referred to hereafter as CCCII/1) contains the characters needed to represent a small sample of Chinese personal names. The second purpose is to consider some of the available alternative responses when the characters needed for a particular purpose, e.g., to catalog a book, are absent.

Ifla International Office for Ubc, C/o British Library, Reference Division, Great Russell Street, London Wc1b 3dg. 193 P. 11.00; $20.00; 1977 Document Type: Book Abstract: This manual has its origins in the international conference on cataloguing principles, paris, 1961, which adopted as section 12 of its statement of principles, a formula for determining the entry-word for personal names in an alphabetical catalogue of books. A provisional edition of the manual appeared in 1963 followed by a definitive edition, published in 1967. The publication of this third edition reflects the progress towards the development and acceptance of standard cataloguing practices in the last ten years, as well as the efforts towards the standardization of bibliographic description. This manual is arranged alphabetically by the name of each country in its official language, romanized where necessary. The only exception to the arrangement by country is the entry under arabic names. For each entry. The first part is called 'name elements' and treats the elements normally forming part of a name. The second part is called 'order of elements in catalogue headings the examples given are the same as those used in the first part, but are illustrative and not prescriptive. The third part gives information on all or some of the following: the national cataloguing code: romanization schemes in use; an authority file of names; authorities for establishing rules about names; and sources and recommended references.

1 Blanken, Robert R. The preparation of international author indexes, with particular reference to the problems of transliteration, prefixes, and compound family names. In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science; Jan/Feb1971, Vol. 22 Issue 1, pp. 51-63, 13 pp. Abstract: Based on a review of variations in national usage, the practices followed by 19 English-language abstracting and indexing services, and typical problems encountered by an indexer in the entry of foreign personal names, it is concluded that the entry of all prefixes regardless of nationality may be the wisest procedure for the average author index. A strong plea is made for increased standardization in the transliteration of Slavic, Greek, and Oriental names and for "correction" of the transliterated names of authors publishing in languages other than their own. The determination of the correct entry element for the compound sur- names found in many nationalities is felt to be an almost insoluble problem unless the authors and publishers cooperate in indicating the desired indexing format. A general consideration of these problems and of indexing theory, as well as of the principles of transliteration and transcription, is followed by guidelines designed to help the practicing indexer improve the consistency of personal name entries; these guide- lines are arranged by language family on the basis of whether the author's native language and the language of the article are written in Roman script.
