The digitized resources use MODS and METS as the underlying schema. There are about 20,000 digital resource.

If you click on an item you'll bring up the bibliographic description and at the bottom you can view the MODS or METS XML.

I'm looking for examples of digital collections that use MODS as the schema for their digitized audio and/or video materials. Links to online collections would be great.

Thanks for your help!
