Faceted Subject Access Interest Group
4:30 pm to 5:30 pm, US/Eastern
OCLC announced last fall that it would be systematically adding FAST (Faceted Application and Subject Terminology) headings to WorldCat bibliographic records. There were many questions on discussion lists about FAST in the wake of the announcement.
The Faceted Subject Access Interest Group will host a presentation on FAST and its implementation at ALA Midwinter. Speakers from OCLC will discuss what FAST can do and how the augmented records look in WorldCat. There will be time after the presentation for questions and sharing of ideas about future uses of FAST in libraries.
