put it?

Thanks & Greetings,

Re: Conference Location in MODS 3.2 (or MODS 3.3?)

We did not break out all subfields in MODS that are broken out in
MARC. That is because we considered MODS to be a derivative of and simpler
list of elements than MARC. We had not had a request to do this
before. Now the conference name is a string which might include place and
date. 

I see no reason why you couldn't add an entry point for the geographic
name. At this point we have geographics only in <subject>, although we
have talked about the need for including a geographic name on its own
(e.g. to use like MARC field 752 for publication place, where an entry is
desirable). We will look at doing this in the next version (probably in a
version 4.0, since it may end up being major and require changes to
existing records).

As for the conference date, you could use dateOther with a type attribute
like type="conference" (this is an uncontrolled list).

Sorry for the delay in responding.

MARC Mapping to MODS,Version 3.1, <titleInfo>, question about subfield 245 h mapping

Hello,

Have been looking at the MARC to MODS mapping document lately, and noticed that you have

245 $n (and $f$g$h$k following $n)      mapped to    <partNumber>
245 $p (and $f$g$h$k following $p)      mapped to    <partName>

Shouldn't subfield h (medium, a.k.a GMD) only be mapped to <form authority="gmd">, not to <partNumber> or <partName> ? 

Am thinking the stylesheet doesn't actually map $h, or $f,$g or $k for that matter, to either <partNumber> or <partName>, unless I'm missing something.

Re: MARC Mapping to MODS,Version 3.1, <titleInfo>, question about subfield 245 h mapping

You're right, this is a mistake and $h will be taken out. In the
stylesheet it isn't carried in title, but only in
<physicalDescription><form>.

I asked:

I put it in <extend>:

<extend unit="page"> : number of pages

<extend unit="table"> : number of tables

<extend unit="figure"> : number of figures

..

Re: How to encode number of Illustrations/Tables/References in MODS?

I'm sorry not to have answered sooner-- I started to and didn't finish.

Generally number of illustrations and number of tables would go under
<physicalDescription><extent>. The extent element is just a string at this
point. We have talked about structuring it so that we can designate units
such as you are suggesting, since we've had a number of requests for
adding this sort of thing. That is on the list for changes for a version
4.0. We will also want to look at the definition of <extent> under <part>,
which does have some structure (and an attribute "unit"). However, using
<part> in your situation isn't appropriate, since you're talking about the
whole and not a part.

We will need to have a full discussion of this, which would result in a
fairly extensive change to MODS. In the meantime, what you suggest won't
work, since there is no unit attribute associated with <extent>, so it
wouldn't validate.  (You mentioned using <extend>, but that is not a valid
MODS element. I think you must have meant <extent>.)

So in the meantime, if you need this sort of thing you could put something
structured in <extension> which allows for local elements. And someone
could put forth a proposal to enhance <extent> for this sort of structure
in the next version.

XSLT with the MODS XMLNS

Hello,

I have been trying to transform MODS records to other formats (Dublin
Core, HTML) and I can't seem to get it to work properly with the MODS
xmlns information included in the root element. I've used several
parsers for XSL 1.0 and 2.0 (through oXygen) and also xsltproc (through
the command line). By process of elimination, I don't think it's a
parser problem.

If I include the xmlns information in the root element, the result is
always text-- the value of each element. Once I remove references to the
xmlns, the transformations work.

I've managed to transform Dublin Core records containing XMLNS info in
the root element by declaring the dc: prefix in the XSLT but I haven't
been able to replicate this when transforming MODS.

Here is a typical root element:

<mods xmlns="http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3" 
    xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
    xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods-3-2.xsd"
    version="3.2">

I'm sure I'm missing something. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Re: XSLT with the MODS XMLNS

Hi --

Take a look at the following from the MODS site:
http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/mods.xsl

This stylesheet converts MODS to a 'simple HTML display'. The opening  
xsl:stylesheet element:

<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
	xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
	xmlns:mods="http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3"
	xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
	exclude-result-prefixes="mods" >

associates the namespace ('http://www.loc.gov/mods/v3') with the  
prefix 'mods' you can use to reference elements in the namespace.  
I've always found it useful to start from a known working state, so I  
hope this gets you started.

Good luck --

Joe
