Libraries face challenges in integrating descriptive metadata for
electronic resources with traditional cataloging data. This program will
address the repurposing of MARC data and metadata interoperability in a
broader context. It will then introduce the Library of Congress'
Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) and present specific project
applications of MODS. Finally, the program will offer scenarios for
coordinating MARC and non-MARC metadata processes in an integrated
metadata management design and introduce tools for simplifying
