The existing MODS-MARC mapping and conversion is based on the MODS 3.0. We are currently in the process of drafting the MODS-MARC mapping and conversion for MODS 3.3.
I know that the 662/752 issue is addressed in the new mapping. And, at first glance, it looks like MODS notes that are typed "bibliography", based on the current MODS notes list <http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/mods-notes.html>, will be converted to MARC 504 notes, once the MODS-MARC mapping and conversion for MODS 3.3 are complete.

In the MODS-MARC map, <note> with type=bibliography maps, like most
other notes, to 500. However, in the MARC format, a bibliography note
is tagged 504.
We are using LC's conversion tools and would like all our bibliography
notes to map to 504, whether they're mapped in from MODS or input
manually through our ILS.
Am I missing something, or is this something that could be revised in
the MODS-MARC map and the conversion tool?
