FAST : Faceted Application of Subject Terminology : principles and applications by Lois Mai Chan ( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and Slovenian and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Library of Congress Subject Headings schema (LCSH) is by far the most commonly used and widely accepted subject vocabulary for general application. It is the de facto universal controlled vocabulary and has been a model for developing subject heading systems by many countries. However, LCSH's complex syntax and rules for constructing headings restrict its application by requiring highly skilled personnel and limit the effectiveness of automated authority control. Recent trends, driven to a large extent by the rapid growth of the Web, are forcing changes in bibliographic control systems to make them easier to use, understand, and apply, and subject headings are no exception. The purpose of adapting LCSH with a simplified syntax to create FAST is to retain the very rich vocabulary of LCSH while making the schema easier to understand, control, apply, and use. The schema maintains upward compatibility with LCSH, and any valid set of LC subject headings can be converted to FAST headings

Main description: Increasing use of the DDC in the German-speaking regions leads to a considerable increase in the demand for information and teaching material on this classification system in Library training and practice. The German translation of the DDC instruction book offers both students and all those working practically or researching with the DDC classification, an extensive introduction to the theoretical basics of the classification, supplemented by professional aspects and many individual examples. The use of tables and the notation synthesis are explained in detail, and clarified with practical exercises. This textbook is thus also well suited for individual studies, offering numerous possibilities to check and repeat what has been learned.
