FAST Converter, a Web Interface for Converting LCSH Headings to FAST Headings, is now Available
LCSH headings can be entered as text, with conversion results appearing as plain text. MARC format bibliographic files can also be uploaded, and a link to the converted file returned. Conversion files are limited to 50,000 bytes, or approximately 500 records.
FAST subject headings were developed by adapting the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH) with a simplified syntax, retaining the very rich vocabulary of LCSH while making the schema easier to understand, control, apply, and use.
FAST Converter is an experimental Web interface and may be withdrawn without notice.
