The MODS/MADS Editorial Committee is starting to think about how best to provide training for those interested in learning more about MODS and MADS and their use in production environments. We'd like to begin collecting presentation slides, handouts, hands-on exercises - anything members of this community have put together to teach MODS to someone else. If you have developed these types of materials, please let the MODS list know - we'd love to hear about them.
While we'd eventually like to have a central place online for anyone to post materials like this, we're planning on starting out small and collecting these materials informally for the MODS/MADS Editorial Committee. That means you shouldn't be shy about sharing them if they're not "perfect." We all have many things we'd go back and change about older presentations and/or training sessions. Please don't let that stop you from sharing your materials. Anything and everything will be of use to us as we start thinking about what training materials should look like. If you have materials that you don't want to post publicly, feel free to send them privately to the Chair of the MODS/MADS Editorial Committee, Jenn Riley, at [log in to unmask]
Thanks to all, and we're looking forward to seeing what you have come up with!
