LC's MODS XML Schema Updated

There is a new release (as of June 6, 2002) of the LC MODS (Metadta Object Description Schema) schema. The web page hasn't been updated to reflect the new version, but the online version of the schema is now at version 1.15 (the web page still says 1.0). LC has also updated the MARC to MODS mapping file (as of June 8, 2002) simplifying some of the more difficult mappings. The example files do not seem to have been updated yet as they do not validate against the new schema. [editor's note, by jaf] The link to the MODS homepage is http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/

"Official" version MODS 1.2 released (none / 0) (#1)

From the email announcement:

"MODS includes a subset of data from the MARC 21 Format for Bibliographic Data. As an element set that allows for the representation of data already in MARC-based systems, it is intended to allow for the conversion of core fields from a MARC 21 record, while some specific data may be dropped. As an element set for original resource description, it allows for a simple record to be created, in some cases using more general tags than those available in the MARC record. The Library of Congress has developed transformations to move MARC 21 records from 2709 form to MARCXML to MODS, with the software available from the MARCXML Web site."

"MODS could potentially be used as follows:
* as a Z39.50 Next Generation specified format
* as an extension schema to METS (Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard)
* to represent metadata for harvesting
* for original resource description in XML syntax (using MARC semantics)
* for representing a simplified MARC record in XML
* for metadata in XML that may be packaged with an electronic resource"

Out, out brief candle!
... it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.
