Maintained by the United States Board of Geographic Names. For authority work we prefer the BGN form for foreign geographic names (with some exceptions for generally accepted English names like “Moscow”). However, the BGN does not use the same transliteration system as ALA-LC, so the BGN form must be put into ALA-LC transliteration (the original BGN transliteration becomes a cross-reference). Authority record example:

151  IAroslavlʹ ...

451  Yaroslavlʹ  ...
