> In response to numerous requests, the Library of Congress' Network
> Development and MARC Standards Office has drafted an XML schema for an
> authority element set that may be used to provide metadata about agents

> serve as a companion to the Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS).
Just curious, will this list become MODS/MADS or will there be a
separate MADS list I need to subscribe to?
