I would think that the preferred name of this person is
But there’s already a Li, Fuming in the name authority file, so you have a conflict. If you can get his birth date from your university, I’d ask for that to resolve the conflict. I don’t think the fuller form of his name is “Fuming Bruce”. Bruce is not a middle name, so I would not go with Li, Fuming $q (Fuming Bruce). If you can’t get a date from the graduate school, then I’d go with profession/occupation probably, e.g. Li, Fuming $c (Engineer) (You didn’t state the discipline his degree is in, so I just guessed Engineer. Substitute whatever is correct).
I think an authority record for him would be something like this:
100 1 Li, Fuming, $d date- or 100 1 Li, Fuming $c (Occupation)
400 1 Li, Bruce, $d date- or 400 1 Li, Bruce $c (Occupation) [there’s also an NAR for Li, Bruce, so an addition is needed on the variant access point too]
I don’t think Appendix F.3 applies in this case:
F.3.1 Additional Instructions on Chinese Names Containing a Non-Chinese Given Name
a name of Chinese origin contains a non-Chinese given name
the name is found in the order [non-Chinese given name] [surname] [Chinese given names]
record the name as [surname], [non-Chinese given name] [Chinese given names].
Record all other names by applying the instructions at 22.214.171.124[log in to unmask]" alt="http://access.rdatoolkit.org/images/rdalink.png">.

Subject: Bruce Li (not that one)
I have a dissertation by “Fuming (Bruce) Li”
I’m reasonably sure Li is the surname and Fuming is the given name. I assume Bruce is his “American” name, or maybe a nickname. Further references to this person are scare – he’s got another credit as Fuming (Bruce) Li on a paper he co-authored; he’s in a group photo for a conference as “Fuming Bruce Li” and there is a patent listing him Li, Fuming Bruce.
Collective wisdom: in the AAP would you record
Li, Fuming Bruce
Li, Fuming (Bruce)
Li, Fuming $q (Fuming Bruce)
Li, Bruce $q (Fuming Bruce)
Or something else? There is another Li, Fuming in the NAF.
Am I missing something in the LC-PCC PS where this situation is covered?
