A question about the MARC to MODS mapping, and a typo in the
In the MARC to MODS mapping for physicalDescription, the 007/13
(values a,p,r) is used for to determine reformatingQuality. Should
the mapping also check that the 007/00 is "c" (electronic resource)?
Someone might crosswalk a record for a sound recording or motion
picture, which also use a, p, and/or r in the 007/13. Or maybe
that's out of scope?
There are some typos in the User Guidelines where the MODS namespace
is given. The MODS v.3 schema uses the namespace URL:
<xsd:schema targetNamespace="http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3" ...>
The XML Structures section of the User Guidelines says:
<mods xmlns:mods: "http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/3">
The namespace URLs in the UG should match the namespace in the
schema, I think. There's also a syntax typo, should be xmlns:mods="...".
The second example has the same typos.
It may also be useful to include the schemaLocation in the UG (though
it is already in the examples).
