Hi Miroslava,

 

For your first question if you mean that 264 First Indicator = 3 (Current/Latest) you could possibly use <dateOther type=”current/latest”> or some similar ‘type’ attribute value that you think would work best for you.

 

Apologies if I have misunderstood.

 

Best wishes,

 

Jan

Subject: [MODS] questions about marc21 to mods mapping

 

Dear MODS Listserv community,

 

I am turning to you to ask for your thoughts on two problems we at our department are currently struggling with.

 

1.       One of our data suppliers asked us how could they display the temporal information from MARC21 field 264 subfield 3 in MODS. According to mappings and stylesheets available at http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/mods-conversions.html , there is no designated way how to get 264$3 to MODS. We feel like putting it simply to dateIssued would be a simplification and the information could lose some of its value. Do you map this subfield to MODS? If yes, where to?

2.       This may be a  matter of our stylesheet template, however: when you have a multiple 264 field in the catalogue, does all the information map to one mods:originInfo or are separate mods:originInfos created for each field? In our case, it merges into one originInfo and lists first all the publishers, then all the places and then all the dateIssued, which can be quite confusing. We are looking into how to solve the problem and how to eventually designate what  kind of information is inside said originInfo. Any recommendations?

 

Thank you in advance for you help and have a great day!
