Assigning FAST Subject Headings in a SNAC CPF Record

The ESWG recommends the assigning Subject headings in a SNAC CPF record follow the FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) approach developed by the Library of Congress. We recommend this approach for four reasons:

  • Is simple to apply
  • Aids in both faceted searching and improved navigation for users
  • Compatible with Library of Congress subject headings
  • More usable for Linked Data projects
