Hello all:

I am wondering if anyone can help me map transliterated and varying 
volume numbers, dates, and page numbers into MODS.  Is that possible? 
Below is an excerpt from some sample data I am attempting to map -- my 
first attempt! For my mapping to work, the sub-element <partNumber> 
would need to be repeatable, sub-element <date> would need to be 
repeatable in <part>. Furthermore, <start>/<end> for "pages" within 
<part> would also need to be repeatable.  I'm also wondering if 
"displayLabel" is an attribute that can be used with any element?  Or is 
it just used within <titleInfo>?

Thanks for any advice and help you can give!
