Please join us at the ALA session MODS and MADS: Current implementations and future directions, sponsored by LITA.

10:30-12:00, Sunday June 27
Washington Convention Center, Room 143 B/C

Over the last few years, the use of MODS has increased rapidly. In 2008 the MODS Editorial Committee was established to work with the community to maintain the MODS and MADS standards and to update these so that they work in increasingly complex and linked metadata environments. This program will include examples of current implementations of MODS/MADS, future directions (including how a 4.0 version might work better at the network level), and its relation to other metadata standards. This program is intended to elicit feedback and discussion with the community.

Speakers:

Jenn Riley, Indiana University: MODS 3.4 is to be released in June 2010, the first Schema release guided by an editorial committee. MODS 3.4 makes two primary types of changes: those intended to help the Schema be more flexible and usable by other communities, and those intended to support RDA-compliant metadata. These changes will be discussed, as well as possible new directions that MODS 4.0 might take.

Bill Leonard, Library and Archives Canada: Use of MODS and MADS at Library and Archives Canada. This presentation will describe the use of MODS within LAC's Trusted Digital Repository.  Local extensions were necessary to carry descriptive metadata for electronic government records.  It will also touch on a separate MARCXML-based system launched earlier this year searches Canadiana authorities offering MADS as an export format.

Sally McCallum and Rebecca Guenther, Library of Congress: Using MODS for discovery of LC's rich collections: This presentation will describe the use of MODS as a common format to provide seamless and integrated access to LC's collections from disparate systems and cataloging formats. It will also discuss the Metadata for Digital Content Working Group, which is establishing a master data element set and format specific profiles for bibliographic descriptions based on MODS.

Amanda Harlan, Baylor University: This presentation will focus on Texas Digital Library's ETD MODS Guidelines & their ETD submission system, Vireo.  It will give an overview on why MODS was chosen to describe ETDS, who was in charge of writing the guidelines, why it was a priority for TDL to develop Vireo, and how much of MODS was incorporated into the Vireo System.  Next the presentation will be covering where TDL is right now in relation to the guidelines and Vireo.  It will give an overview of how many institutions are implementing it currently, how those institutions are dealing with exporting the metadata to their local systems, and who is continuing the development of Vireo and troubleshooting of it.  Lastly it will give an overview of future projections for TDL's Vireo and guidelines.  The presentation will give an overview of why the Vireo's Users Group was formed and its charge, the push to review the ETD MODS Guidelines to see if there is a need for any editing, and how institutions are working with developers of Vireo for enhancement recommendations for all parties involved: graduate school, library, and students.

Karen Miller, Northwestern University: Northwestern University Library's digital repository stores digital resources and metadata in a variety of formats. Metadata schemas are chosen based on their suitability to the type of materials being described, with MARCXML being used for monographs and serials, EAD for archival materials, VRA Core for visual images, and so on. In order to facilitate cross-collection searching, each of these metadata schemas has been crosswalked to MODS, which functions as a "lingua franca" for indexing and is particularly well suited for web display.  In the case of EAD, crosswalking to MODS is straightforward at the archival description level, but once subordinate components become involved, translating a hierarchical structure into a flat one presents challenges. This presentation describes the obstacles encountered and solutions implemented at NUL.
