Dartmouth College Library MODS Documentation

This page provides guidelines for the creation of digital project descriptive metadata in the MODS format.

All external links open in a new window.

Base Guidelines

In general, the Library adheres to version 1.1 of the DLF/Aquifer Implementation Guidelines for Shareable MODS Records at the strictest level of adoption. Deviations from the DLF/Aquifer guidelines occur in some places due to preferred local practice or improvements since made to the MODS schema in versions 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, or 3.6. In particular, note the following changes implemented in versions 3.4, 3.5, and 3.6:

Refer to the Library of Congress's MODS User Guidelines "Elements and Attributes" section for descriptions and examples of the current version of the MODS schema. Links are provided below to the page for each top-level element.

Local Practices

These practices override or expand portions of the DLF/Aquifer guidelines.

Throughout the Schema

General Editing

Add new top-level elements as necessary to include multiple titles, names, subjects, imprint statements, etc.

Only include punctuation that occurs as part of the content of an element. Do not include ISBD punctuation used to separate MARC subfields.

Remove all XML comments (e.g., <!-- Enter non-filing characters here -->) completely when entering data.

Remove any elements that are blank (i.e., do not have any text content or subelements), except for those within <mods:extension>.

Do not insert line breaks within the text content of any element. (Line breaks within text in the examples below are present only for ease of reading.)

Under <mods:recordInfo>, update <mods:recordChangeDate encoding="w3cdtf">, or add it if it does not exist, whenever editing a record.

Dates

All descriptive date elements (except within <mods:name>) should contain @encoding="w3cdtf". Use one of these date formats, in order of descending preference:

Use MODS' date-related attributes to indicate date ranges and qualifiers when converting MARC-encoded or other dates to W3CDTF.

URIs for Controlled Vocabularies

Provide @authority and @valueURI for all terms within <mods:name>, <mods:subject>, <mods:genre>, and <mods:titleInfo> elements where they are available.

Alternate Scripts and Languages

Common MARC Mappings: 880, XXX $6

Modification to LC-PCC PS for RDA 1.4, section "Greek and Other Non-Latin Script Letters, Ideographs, Etc.": Retain any characters from non-Latin scripts. Use @script on each element to identify the non-Latin script with a four-letter value taken from the ISO 15924 Code List. Create a parallel element containing the romanized form. Link the top-level elements containing these forms by adding @altRepGroup to each. For each pair of linked elements within a record, the value of @altRepGroup should be the same two-digit number, starting with "01". See <mods:titleInfo> and <mods:abstract> for examples.

Elements containing a majority of content in a non-English language should use @lang to identify that language with a three-letter value taken from the ISO 639-2 Code List. See <mods:titleInfo> for an example.

Top-level Elements

Refer to the MARC 21 to MODS 3.5 Mapping document for detailed mappings between MARC fields and subfields and MODS elements, subelements, and attributes.

See also the official RDA-to-MODS mapping (last updated for MODS version 3.3) for information about less-commonly-used elements.

<mods:titleInfo> requiredLibrary of Congress logoSee LC documentation for this element

Common MARC Mappings: 245, 210, 242, 246, 130, 240, 730, 740

Notes

Use @type with <mods:titleInfo> only for abbreviated, translated, alternative, or uniform titles.

See <mods:note> below for encoding the statement of responsibility.

Use both @type="alternative" and @displayLabel="Uncontrolled title" for an uncontrolled related title.

Refer to project-specific documentation for any alternative titles to be assigned.

Common MARC Mappings: 007/various, 008/various, 337, 338, 300, 856 $q

Resources: RDA Media Types, RDA Carrier Types, IANA Media Types

Notes

Assign the RDA media and carrier types to <mods:form type="media" authority="rdamedia"> and <mods:form type="carrier" authority="rdacarrier"> elements, respectively.

Place extent data within <mods:extent>. For each other type of data that could be mapped to subfields of the MARC 300 field (e.g. "other physical details", "dimensions"), create a separate <mods:note> element with appropriate @type.

For collection-level records, supplement <mods:extent> with a parenthetical count if the collection is not a continuing resource.

<mods:internetMediaType> and <mods:digitalOrigin> are required.

When the source data contains information applicable only to the physical version that would nevertheless provide useful context, move it to a <mods:note> element with appropriate @type.

Examples
<mods:physicalDescription>
    <mods:form type="media" authority="rdamedia">computer</mods:form>
    <mods:form type="carrier" authority="rdacarrier">online resource</mods:form>
    <mods:internetMediaType>application/pdf</mods:internetMediaType>

</mods:physicalDescription>

<mods:abstract> required for collection-level records onlyLibrary of Congress logoSee LC documentation for this element

Common MARC Mappings: 520

Notes

For collection-level records, use @displayLabel to associate <mods:abstract> content with sections of the website splash page template, or to indicate preferred labels for catalog display.

If splash-page metadata elements require XHTML encoding to preserve formatting for display purposes, create both a <mods:abstract> element and a <mods:extension>/<drb:section> element, and link them using @altRepGroup, as described under <mods:extension> below. Use <mods:abstract> for the plain-text version of this content.

Examples
<mods:abstract displayLabel="About the Collection">Dating from between 1919 and 1925 the papers of Charles Daniel Tenney include essays, speeches and translations concerning Tenney's time in China as well as his views on education, the tensions between Christian missions and Confucianism, criticism of the Chinese language and writing system, criticism of the 1911 revolution and the founding of the Chinese Republic, as well as Tenney's thoughts on the Jewish colony and tablets at Keifeng. Additionally, included is Tenney's typescript copy of Bishop George Smith's translation of the Keifeng Jewish Tablets. The Papers of Charles Daniel Tenney form part of the manuscript holdings of Rauner Special Collections library at Dartmouth College. The original documents are available for research and may be requested by asking for call number: MS-794 in Rauner Library. The papers were digitally reformatted and transcribed over the summer of 2012 as part of the Dartmouth Digital Library Program.

<mods:abstract displayLabel="Abstract" altRepGroup="02" script="Grek">Despite immunogenicity, melanoma-specific vaccines have demonstrated minimal clinical efficacy in patients with established disease, but enhance survival when administered in the adjuvant setting. It has been shown that T cell infiltration of melanoma is associated with enhanced clinical efficacy and is a desirable endpoint of immunotherapeutic vaccination. T cell infiltration into tumors is regulated, in part, by chemokine receptors. Therefore, we have investigated the chemokine receptor CXCR3 in three different settings. 1) The induction of CXCR3 on CD8 T cells by peptide vaccination in human patients, 2) the requirement for CXCR3 expression on CD8 T cells for the infiltration of metastatic melanoma lesions in the lungs of mice, and 3) the requirement for host CXCR3 expression for engraftment of metastatic melanoma in the lung. Our results are three-fold. 1) We determined that vaccination of a melanoma peptide vaccine in adjuvant induces tumor antigen-specific CD8 T cells that are predominantly positive for CXCR3. These cells express high levels of Tbet, IFN-γ, and IL-12R-β1, and thus maintain a phenotype that supports the infiltration and eradication of melanoma. 2) We demonstrated that CXCR3 is required for efficient infiltration of tumor-bearing lungs. Additionally, we observed temporal regulation of CXCR3-cognate chemokines with the establishment of melanoma metastases in the lung. This correlated with temporal regulation of T cell infiltration. We demonstrated that blocking adenosine signaling in the tumor microenvironment restored chemokine production and T cell infiltration in advanced metastatic lesions. 3) Host expression of CXCR3 is required for the engraftment of pulmonary melanoma metastases. We observed that CXCR3-/- mice were protected from melanoma engraftment in the lung, as early as 24 hours after tumor cell injection. We determined that a CXCR3+ host cell was mediating this differential engraftment, and determined that eliminating macrophages in C57BL/6 mice could reduce melanoma engraftment of the lung to levels seen in CXCR3-/- mice. We show that CXCR3 and its ligands play a crucial role in both immunemediated regulation, and metastatic dissemination, of melanoma. Therefore, regulation of CXCR3 expression on lymphocytes and CXCR3 ligands in the tumor microenvironment will be critical for optimizing immune-mediated therapy of melanomas (and likely other tumors).</mods:abstract>

Notes

Use three instances of <mods:accessCondition> for copyright-related information:

  1. Record the license or statement text in <mods:accessCondition> type="use and reproduction".
  2. Record the license or statement name in <mods:accessCondition> type="use and reproduction" @displayLabel="Standardized rights statement", and its URI in @xlink:href.
  3. Insert <cmd:copyright> and its subelements in a <mods:accessCondition> container without attributes.

Refer to project-specific documentation for the rights statements to be assigned.

Examples
<mods:accessCondition type="use and reproduction">The copyright and related rights status of this material has been reviewed by the organization that has made the material available, but the organization was unable to make a conclusive determination as to the copyright status of the material.

Notes

<drb:filename type="master"> is used for the name (including extensions) of a master file associated with the described resource. Repeat this element for each master file.

<drb:flag> is used to track whether an object's assigned DOI has been registered. @registered should remain blank until it can be filled in with the date of registration (usually after the MODS record has been completed).

If splash-page metadata elements require XHTML encoding to preserve formatting for display purposes, create both a <mods:extension>/<html> element and a <mods:abstract> element, and link them using @altRepGroup with a capital-letter value.

Refer to project-specific documentation for any additional content.

Examples
<mods:extension xmlns:drb="/~library/catmet/">
    <drb:flag type="doi" agency="CrossRef" registered=""/>
    <drb:filename type="master">stone-eh01-001.tif</drb:filename>

More than 40 years later, with more than 10 million copies sold in 28 languages, this "little book with powerful ideas" endures as a touchstone for anyone seeking to understand the complex relationships underlying today's global environmental and economic trends.
