Mr. Wu was born in Haining, Zhejiang Province, in 1930. He used to be the Deputy Director of Shanghai Library. He is a well-known expert in cataloging rules and in serials management. He is also one of the Chinese translators of AACR2 and ISBD(S). I met Mr. Wu in 2003 during the meeting for the revision of the Chinese Cataloging Rules.
YE Fensheng, Mr. Wu's wife, is also an expert in library cataloging.
