Subject access preparing for the future by Patrice Landry( file )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and Multiple languages and held by 729 libraries worldwide
This volume contains the proceedings of a special conference held in Florence, August 2009. The theoretical and methodological aspects of rethinking semantic access to information and knowledge are explored. Innovative projects deployed to cope with the challenges of the future are presented and discussed. This book offers a unique opportunity for librarians and other information professionals to get acquainted with the state of the art in subject indexing
FAST : Faceted Application of Subject Terminology : principles and applications by Lois Mai Chan( Book )
7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 191 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

Modeling aggregates in FRBR by Maja Žumer( Article )
2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
In the bibliographic environment, the term aggregate is used to describe a bibliographic entity formed by combining distinct bibliographic units together. Aggregates are a large and growing class of information resources-up to 20% of the bibliographic records in OCLC's WorldCat may represent aggregates. The Functional Requirements for Bibliographic Records: Final Report only briefly references aggregates. Difficulties and inconsistencies in the application of the FRBR model to aggregates have been identified as a significant impediment to FRBR implementation. To address the issue, the FRBR Review Group established a Working Group on Aggregates that completed its charge and submitted its final report in 2011. The Working Group proposed that an aggregate be defined as a ʺmanifestation embodying multiple distinct expressions.ʺ This article examines the proposed definition and explores how aggregates can be modeled
The concept of a work in WorldCat an application of FRBR by Rick Bennett( file )
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
Experiments with the IFLA functional requirements for bibliographic records (FRBR) by Thomas Butler Hickey( file )
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( file )
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
Monograph circulation patterns in academic libraries by Edward T O'Neill( Book )

Book deterioration in Ohio libraries by Edward T O'Neill( Article )
3 editions published between 1991 and 1994 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Functional requirements for subject authority data (FRSAD) a conceptual model by Marcia Lei Zeng( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
The purpose of authority control is to ensure consistency in representing a value - a name of a person, a place name, or a term or code representing a subject - in the elements used as access points in information retrieval. The primary purpose of this study is to produce a framework that will provide a clearly stated and commonly shared understanding of what the subject authority data/record/file aims to provide information about, and the expectation of what such data should achieve in terms of answering user needs
OhioLINK--OCLC collection analysis project 2011 by OhioLINK Collection Building Task Force( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 libraries 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
FAST: fasetna uporaba predmetnega izrazja ( file )
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
How World Wide is the Web? trends in the internationalization of Web sites by Brian F Lavoie( file )
2 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The Web is often characterized as a universal information space, in the sense that the provision of and access to Web content is open to all. It is well known, however, that the majority of Web content originates from a small group of English-speaking countries, chiefly the United States. This paper examines trends in the internationalization of Web content, and in particular, whether the Web is becoming increasingly globalized as it matures, and to what segment of the world's countries and languages it currently extends. Sample data from 1998 and 1999 suggests that the Web's content is still far from a true global cross-section, but is slowly expanding both in terms of its geographical origins and the languages in which it is made available
