Hi. I'm a little confused about the use of mods:location. It is defined in
the user guidelines as being for the location (physical or online) of the
resource - e.g. a repository - and it always seems to be used this way.
However, under the 'type' attribute for physicalLocation it is suggested
that terms such as creation and discovery may be used, suggesting (to me, at
least) that it may be used for other types of location (in what sense is a
resource 'discovered' in a repository, unless it has really lousy finding
aids?!). I'm looking for a way of describing in MODS the venue of a music
performance. I know that I can use mods:note with a 'type' attribute, but I
wondered if it is valid to use physicalLocation (with a suitable 'type'
attribute) for this.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
Many thanks indeed,
