A bit of explanation here, since some people on this list have not seen
MODS yet. We have been working on it for awhile now, but have had limited
review mainly from the Z39.50 Next Generation folks and some others
scattered around. Colin obviously has already seen the schema. Others may
not have. We will be announcing its availability later today, so stay
tuned! Then you can all think about producing MODS records!
