Hi Tracy: 
thanks very much. Your fix provides a better result than the one I had
originally suggested. 
Great to have the XSLT updated.

Subject: [MODS] MODS to DC xslt not transforming dates


I've notice that when transforming from MODS to DC the <dateIssued> and
<dateCreated> elements don't seem to be getting populated in the DC. Has
anyone else encountered this issue ? I modified the style sheet at
and included this pair of templates to output dates represented in the
/mods:originInfo and /mods:relatedItem/mods:originInfo xpaths. 

<xsl:template match="mods:relatedItem[mods:originInfo]">
        <xsl:for-each select="mods:originInfo/mods:dateCreated |
mods:originInfo/mods:dateIssued |                      
mods:originInfo/mods:dateCaptured | mods:originInfo/mods:dateOther">
              <xsl:if test="normalize-space(.)!= ''">
                    <xsl:value-of select="."/>

<xsl:template match="mods:originInfo[mods:dateCreated |
| mods:dateCaptured | mods:dateOther]">
        <xsl:for-each select="mods:dateCreated | mods:dateIssued |
mods:dateCaptured | mods:dateOther">
            <xsl:if test="normalize-space(.)!= ''">
                <xsl:value-of select="."/>

If anyone would like to test/confirm this as well I'd appreciate it.
