There is a draft of MODS version 3.2 out for review at:
It includes the following changes:
1.1. Added attribute "note" to allow for notes associated with the
link. Tentative plan for 4.0 is to make it an element instead of an
attribute, and wrap <url> and <urlNote> together. Can't do that in 3.2
because it would not be compatible with 3.1.
1.2. Added attribute "access", enumerated list with values:
Added enumerated values:
digitized other analog
3.1. Added attributes ID, type, order
3.2. <part> may now be empty (minOccurs 0 on choice)
4. ID attribute added.
4.1 to relatedItem
4.2 to note.
5. The following elements have been globalized:
5.1 <dateCaptured> (under <originInfo) dateCapturedType defined
5.2 <edition> (under <originInfo> editionType defined
5.3 <physicalLocation> (under <location>) physicalLocationType defined
6. Elements whose type had been assumed to be "string", but had not been
explicitly typed, are now typed.
We will make this official after a short comment period (we have already
addressed most of the details). Please send any comments by Apr. 14.
We may still add the attribute "facet" to <subject> and <topic>: see
