Please note that we've made some changes to the draft MARC authorities to
MADS mapping, since we discovered in writing the stylesheet for conversion
that the authority attribute was missing. That became very complicated
particularly because of LCSH coding rules. A revision is up at:
Please let us know if you see and possible errors.
It's still called preliminary until we test some records with the
stylesheet, which we're working on . We also plan to issue the stylesheet
to convert MARC authorities to MADS in the near future. Then we hope
people will experiment with it.
We will be sending out a message soon with proposed MODS changes for
version 4.0. Stay tuned...
