FAST: fasetna uporaba predmetnega izrazja ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in Slovenian and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Library of Congress Subject Headings Scheme (LCSH) je najpogosteje uporabljan in najbolje sprejet slovar predmetnih oznak za splošno uporabo. Dejansko je to splošen kontrolirani slovar, ki ga mnoge države uporabljajo za model pri razvijanju sistemov predmetnih oznak. Vendar pa kompleksna skladnja in pravila za oblikovanje oznak zaradi potrebe po visoko kvalificiranem osebju omejujejo njegovo uporabo in zmanjšujejo učinkovitost avtomatizirane normativne kontrole. Najnovejše težnje, ki so posledica hitrega razvoja spleta, zahtevajo spremembe v sistemih bibliografske kontrole, ki naj bi bili enostavnejši za uporabo in razumevanje - predmetne oznake pri tem niso izjema. Za oblikovanje FAST-a je namen prilagoditve LCSH-ja s poenostavitvijo skladnje ta, da se obdrži bogat besedni zaklad LCSH-ja, ob tem pa zagotovi enostavnejše razumevanje, kontrola in uporaba. Novi sistem ostane skladen z LCSH-jem v smeri navzgor, kar pomeni, da je mogoče vsak sklop predmetnih oznak LCSH pretvoriti v predmetne oznake FAST.
Experiments with the IFLA functional requirements for bibliographic records (FRBR) by Thomas Butler Hickey ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
OCLC is investigating how best to implement IFLA's Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR). As part of that work we have undertaken a series of experiments with algorithms to group existing bibliographic records into works and expressions. Working with both subsets of records and the whole WorldCat database, the algorithm we developed achieved reasonable success identifying all manifestations of a work.
FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) a simplified LCSH-based vocabulary by Edward T O'Neill ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) schema 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 new subjectheading systems around the world. 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 the LCSH in a faceted schema with a simplified syntax is to retain the very rich vocabulary of LCSH while making it easier to understand, control, apply, and use. The FAST schema maintains upward compatibility with LCSH, and any valid set of LC subject headings can be converted to FAST headings. FAST consists of eight distinct facets. Authority records have been created for all established headings except for the chronological facet. The initial version of the FAST authority file will contain approximately two million authority records.
The concept of a work in WorldCat an application of FRBR by Rick Bennett ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This paper explores the concept of a work in WorldCat, the OCLC Online Union Catalog, using the hierarchy of bibliographic entities defined in the Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records (FRBR) report. A methodology is described for constructing a sample of works by applying the FRBR model to randomly selected WorldCat records.

Form subdivisions their identification and use in LCSH by Edward T O'Neill ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Form subdivisions have always been an important part of the Library of Congress Subject Headings. However, when the MARC format was developed, no separate subfield code to identify form subdivisions was defined. Form and topical subdivisions were both included within a general subdivision category. In 1995, the USMARC Advisory Group approved a proposal defining subfield $v for form subdivisions and in 1999 the Library of Congress began identifying form subdivisions with the new code. However, there are millions of older bibliographic records lacking the explicit form subdivision coding. Identifying form subdivisions retrospectively is not a simple task. An algorithmic method was developed to identify form subdivisions coded as general subdivisions. The algorithm was used to identify 2,563 unique form subdivisions or combinations of form subdivisions in OCLC's WorldCat. The algorithm proved to be highly accurate with an error rate estimated to be less than 0.1%. The observed usage of the form subdivisions was highly skewed with the 100 most used form subdivisions or combinations of subdivisions accounting for 90% of the assignments.

The Bosnian National Library building a virtual collection by Edward T O'Neill ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Artillery attacks during the siege of Sarajevo in August 1992 destroyed the collection and catalog of the Bosnian National and University Library. The effort to rebuild the library depends, at least in part, on the reconstruction of its catalog. We examined WorldCat, the OCLC Online Union Catalog, to determine the criteria that would be most effective in selecting records appropriate for rebuilding a Bosnian catalog. For the first cut extraction, we applied the following seven criteria to WorldCat: (1) works of Bosnian authorship, (2) works in Serbo-Croatian languages, (3) works about Bosnia or Yugoslavia, (4) works classified by LC or Dewey as Bosnian, (5) titles with Bosnian keywords, (6) works published in Bosnia, and (7) works with Bosnian-related subjects. Examination of the results suggests that adding selected geographic subject headings and personal name subject headings will result in better recall.

OhioLINK--OCLC collection analysis project 2011 by OhioLINK Collection Building Task Force ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The goal of this study is to gain a better understanding of how the resources of the OhioLINK libraries are being used and to identify how the limited resources of OhioLINK member libraries can be utilized more effectively. To gain a better understanding of these collections and their use, circulation data for virtually all books in Ohio academic libraries was collected and analyzed. During the spring of 2007 and again in the spring of 2008, the library-systems managers at each of the OhioLINK libraries generated a file of circulation records for all their print books. These were matched against WorldCat (93% matched) and the resulting database was analyzed.
