    It’s a pleasure to announce the release of this document.  This responds in part to interest from existing and prospective FAST users as well as periodic questions from members of the CaMMS Faceted Subject Access Interest Group


    Many of you will recall that the FAST team provided a brief presentation about this at ALA Annual.


    Release was slightly delayed (we expected it out in July), but we’re delighted to have it out now.
