Morgan Cundiff and Nate Trail will describe the creation of Library of Congress Presents: Music, Theater, and Dance (LCP). LCP is a second-generation digital library web application which makes available digital versions of performing arts-related materials from the Library's collections. Data from various sources is represented and aggregated using the XML data standards emerging from the digital library community. Of special interest is the use of the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS) to describe digital objects, and the use of the Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) to express bibliographic data. The application is built entirely using open source software, including the XML publishing framework Cocoon and the search engine Lucene.
