Whoops, sorry!  Like so:

<part>
   <detail type="volume"><number>12</number></detail>
   <detail type="issue"><number>5</number></detail>
   <extent unit="pages"><start>23</start><end>30</end></extent>
   <extent unit="pages"><start>61</start><end>66</end></extent>
</part>

You could also do it this way:

    <part type="pages">
        <detail>
            <number>23-30</number>
            <number>61-66</number>
        </detail>
    </part>

Or, since extent is repeatable, you could do it this way:

        <extent unit="pages">
            <start>23</start>
            <end>30</end>
        </extent>
        <extent unit="pages">
            <start>61</start>
            <end>66</end>
        </extent>

But again, whether Zotero will interpret this correctly I have no idea.

So, being curious, I went hunting, and it turns out that there is a Zotero/MODS mapping example out there (from this page https://www.zotero.org/support/kb/field_mappings click on “Field mappings for most Zotero export types are listed here” which takes you to https://github.com/aurimasv/zotero-import-export-formats then click on “MODS.xml”).  Within the MODS.xml file, each <mods>….</mods> chunk is an example of how to do a different type of source.  If you look at the section for journal articles (<genre authority="local">journalArticle</genre>) the example it gives is this:

<part>
   <detail type="volume"><number>Volume</number></detail>
   <detail type="issue"><number>Issue</number></detail>
   <extent unit="pages"><start>Pages</start><end>Pages</end></extent>
</part>

This suggests to me that simply repeating the <extent> might be the right way to do it, for example:

<part>
   <detail type="volume"><number>12</number></detail>
   <detail type="issue"><number>5</number></detail>
   <extent unit="pages"><start>23-30</start><end>Pages</end></extent>
   <extent unit="pages"><start>61-66</start><end>Pages</end></extent>
</part>

Instead of <start> and <end> (which assumes a single start point and a single end point, since only one of each is permissible), I think <list> is a better semantic match for this:

https://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/userguide/part.html#list

<extent unit=”pages”>
   <list>22–27, 91–92</list>
</extent>

Of course, whether Zotero interprets that correctly is a different question altogether.  I’d

Greetings,

what is the MODS XML code supposed to be for an article with split pagination? Say the article is pages 23-30, and 61-66.

We are trying to make sure the export for Zotero is correct and we can't find any exemplars.
for more details see comments here: https://forums.zotero.org/discussion/comment/327068

all the best,
