As a reminder, the Chicago Manual of Style has just come out in a new
edition, and it might be helpful to try to stay in synch with their
recommended elements of a standard citation. Notably, AACR2 uses the
Chicago Manual of Style as a source/authority for editorial style in
bibliographic records. - Barbara

We are adding elements to MODS to be able to parse a citation
especially
for the ability to be able to generate an openURL; there has also been
much interest from those needing this type of information to create
bibliographic citations in XML. The initial reasons to add these in
MODS
are similar to those for adding to MARC in the proposal that was
recently
approved giving fuller citation information in field 773. In MARC we
are
constrained by the available subfields in the field, so the parsing is
not
as complete as what has been proposed for MODS, although the elements
can
be mapped. Since XML doesn't impose a similar restraint it makes sense
to
parse the data in MODS.

For full enumeration and chronology information (e.g. the coded MARC
holdings elements that were recently mentioned for seasons), users
should
consider using the extension element. It is possible to encode full
holdings information using the existing Z39.50 holdings schema. See
the
MODS guidelines under <extension> for examples. For such complex
information, this should be used in conjunction with free text (in the
proposed <part><date> element.
