Searching Chinese Materials

Please note that the LC Pinyin Romanization that used by libraries in the North America is slightly different than the habitual uses in academic writings. The most noticeable difference is that LC Romanization rules do not lump syllables except for personal and place names. When searching the library catalogues, please follow the LC rules. See following links and a video tutorial for detailed instructions.
