Title
Consultation on subject indexing and classification standards applied by the British Library
Source

Year

Abstract
A broad-based review of the subject and classification schemes used on British Library records began in late 2014. The review was undertaken in response to a number of drivers including: - An increasing demand on available resources due to the rapidly expanding digital publishing arena, and continuing steady state in print publication patterns - Increased demands on metadata to meet changing audience expectations.
Content
The Library is consulting with stakeholders concerning the potential impact of these proposals. No firm decisions have yet been taken regarding either of these standards. FAST 1. The British Library proposes to adopt FAST selectively to extend the scope of subject indexing of current and legacy content. 2. The British Library proposes to implement FAST as a replacement for LCSH in all current cataloguing, subject to mitigation of the risks identified above, in particular the question of sustainability. DDC 3. The British Library proposes to implement Abridged DDC selectively to extend the scope of subject indexing of current and legacy content.
