Chapter 9. MODS About MODS

"MODS" in an acronym for Metadata Object Description Schema. It is a bibliographic schema with lib- rary applications in mind. Its elements are a subset of MARC 21 (and therefore MARCXML). It is de- signed to be more human-friendly than MARC 21 relying on language-based element names as opposed to numeric codes. Instead of denoting a title the code 245 in MARC/MARCXML it is called "title" in MODS. In short, it is a schema designed to build on the good work of MARC and traditional cataloging, and at the same time it is designed to meet the needs of today's environment. Below is a MODS repres- entation of the MARC/MARCXML data from the previous chapter.
