Why are libraries and other cultural heritage bodies choosing FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) for subject indexing? Join us on 2020 October 14 for a free 60-minute event, where Alan Danskin, Collection Metadata Standards Manager, British Library, will share how easy it is for technical department managers and practitioners alike to leverage this multi-faceted vocabulary of approximately 1.8 million headings. He will discuss tools available to help you begin using it and describe how FAST simplifies assignment of subject headings. 

Dean Seeman, Head of Metadata, University of Victoria Libraries, will share how FAST has helped with describing non-MARC digital collections and Jesse Lambertson, The University of Chicago, D'Angelo Law Library, Chair, PCC SCT FAST Training for PCC Task Group will provide an update on efforts to promote FAST and provide training materials.
