"This third edition of Lois Mai Chan's Cataloging and Classification covers the analysis and representation of methods used in describing, organizing, and providing access to resources made available in or through libraries, including both materials owned by the library (mostly physical items such as books, journals, and nonprint sources) and external electronic resources accessible through the library's portal. Chan emphasizes the standards for bibliographic control widely adopted in the library field, reports on recent developments in the retrieval arena, and discusses a number of popular metadata schemas in order to provide an overview of the library cataloging and classification field."--Jacket

FAST : Faceted Application of Subject Terminology : principles and applications by Lois Mai Chan( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) is perhaps the best known bibliographic control system in existence, it is cumbersome and not always user friendly. Faceted Application of Subject Terminology (FAST) is designed to rework LCSH's authority rules so that they are easier to use, understand, and apply. The result is a schema designed to handle a large volume of materials with less effort and cost. In this guide, two members of the original design team have put together numerous examples of FAST-driven projects including traditional monographs, special collections (archives, business records), electronic resources, and websites. The result is a prototype designed to be used not just by experienced catalogers but also by people with minimal training and experience
