    Fast Policy and Outreach Committee

    The FAST Policy and Outreach Committee (FPOC) is seeking new members for positions that will become available in January 2023.

    Established in September 2018, the joint committee of OCLC and FAST implementers acts as an advisory and outreach body. Their priority is to ensure FAST will be a fully supported, widely adopted and community developed general subject vocabulary derived from LCSH with tools and services that serve the needs of diverse communities and contexts.

    Members serve for a maximum of two terms, each of two years, and are eligible to serve as co-chair.  The committee meets online once a month, with meetings usually lasting one hour. Members are also expected to contribute to the advisory work of the committee and the promotion of FAST.

    Membership guidelines can be found here. Interested candidates can self-nominate using this form and submit it no later than November 29, 2022.

    FPOC is focused on promoting the use and implementation of OCLC's faceted vocabulary and encourages candidates working in diverse subject areas to apply. 

    Kind regards,        

    Alan Danskin

    Co-Chair FPOC
