Rebecca,

Thanks for the response. I'm still a bit perplexed by the example in the
MODS user guidelines for vesion 3.0. It shows an example:

      <location authority="marcorg">
        <physicalLocation>DLC MicRR Microfilm 82/528
MicRR</physicalLocation>
      </location>



In the Rutgers application, we need to record both the text name of the
owning agency as well as its MARC org code. I thought it would look
something like this:

<location>
   <physicalLocation> New Jersey HIstorical Society</physicalLocation
   <physicalLocation authority="marcorg">NjHi</physicalLocation>
</location>

The two examples--the one from the web site and my own--code the authority
differently.
