mapping data to MODS record structures (from a PICA library system via Marc21
interface) . This includes various kind of authority data, eg. subjects, persons
etc. For subjects, the authority data is in SKOS. (Thesaurus for Economics,
preview on http://www.zbw.eu/beta/stw).
It is based on concepts with an URI as persistent identifier. The concepts
have prefered labels in German and English, which should be present in the MODS
records for display and indexing convenience.
figured out as a possible solution is this:
really like the de-normalized form. Much better would be:
<subject authority="stw" xlink:href="http://zbw.eu/stw/descriptor/19664-4">
<topic lang="en">Financial crisis</topic>
However, that's invalid in
you think - is it ok to use xlink:href for the reference to the authority
are new in the MODS field, we wonder if there is are other solutions or best
practices for this we may not be aware of.
