Announcement: MODS Version 3.0 Available for Use

The revised MODS schema version 3.0 is now available online
at: Mappings in both directions between
MARCXML and MODS as well as the Outline of elements and attributes also
reflect version 3.0.

Changes from the previous version 2.0 are documented

The MARCXML to MODS stylesheet, guidelines, and examples will be revised
to reflect the new schema shortly. A stylesheet to convert MODS records
using the 2.0 schema to 3.0 will also be available shortly.

The revision is based on input from implementors and from others who have
participated in this list. Thank you all for contributing.
