I'm new to the list so sorry if this has been asked before ...
Could anyone please point me to examples of MODS records that have been
created for digital reproductions/surrogates of hard copy items -
particularly texts? The example records on the MODS website all relate
either to original analogue resources such as books or maps or to born-
I'm thinking primarily of digital texts (e.g. a keyed version of a modern
edition of a Shakespeare play). But also digital images of photographs or
slides of original art works.
The AHDS is attempting to bring resources of different types into a single
cross-searchable metadata structure and it is important that we maintain a
distinction between details that relate to a digital item and those that
relate to the original upon which it is based. The relevant part of the
MODS user guidelines is presumably:
I guess this could either form part of the MODS record for the digital item
or placed within a linked separate record that relates to the original?
Any full examples would be useful.
Thanks in advance,
