FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) Available as Linked Data

OCLC has made available FAST (Faceted Application of Subject Terminology) as Linked Data.

OCLC describes FAST as “an enumerative, faceted subject heading schema derived from the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH)”; i.e., an un-coordinated version of LCSH.

Like LCSH, FAST contains a very large collection of legal subject terms applicable to common law, civil law, mixed, and other types of jurisdictions.
