American Memory and Global Gateway Legacy Conversion Project

Submitted: 2006-04-05 11:38:40
Last updated: 2007-04-09 11:04:45
Institution: Library of Congress
Description: This project will map existing American Memory and Global Gateway descriptive data created in formats other than MARC (approximately 200,000 records) to a standard schema. MODS will be used as an expression schema, and MODS records will be output for record sharing/OAI harvesting once the newly normalized data in the American Memory & Global Gateway application has been re-engineered.

Australian National Bibliographic Database Metadata Project

Submitted: 2006-03-31 10:46:49
Last updated: 2007-04-09 11:04:45
Institution: National Library of Australia
Description: Used for the contribution of metadata records to the Australian National Bibliographic Database (ANBD), which is accessible through the Kinetica service. The project is based on the collection of metadata records through the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) and other means (primarily Batch*Link). MODS is used to transform Dublin Core (DC) records, enabling more effective contribution of records, particularly contribution of metadata for digital content. Records are converted to MARC via MODS.

DLF Aquifer Initiative

Submitted: 2007-03-30 11:33:51
Last updated: 2007-11-20 16:07:30
Institution: Digital Library Federation
Description: The primary goal of the Aquifer Initiative is to enable distributed content to be used effectively by libraries and scholars for teaching, learning, and research. The provision of rich, shareable metadata for this distributed content is an important step towards this goal. DLF Aquifer project work is distributed amongst four working groups, collections, metadata, technology and services. The Metadata Working Group of the DLF Aquifer Initiative has developed a set of implementation guidelines for MODS specifically for use in describing digital cultural heritage and humanities-based scholarly resources that are to be shared within the Aquifer Initiative and wider. They are intended to provide a best practice to build to for rich, shareable metadata that is coherent and consistent.

Empweb

Submitted: 2006-07-27 14:26:21
Last updated: 2007-04-09 11:04:45
Institution: Kalio.Net
Description: Empweb is an open and extensible library circulation system. The first version was implemented at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaiso. Versions 1.6 and 2.0 will be available in the near future. We plan to release Empweb as a free/open souce product (still undecided on the license). We chose MODS as the bibliographic description format in which the "object database web service" returns data. We implemented a custom extension to represent holdings data, but now that the MODS initiative is considering formal representation of holdings data, we will probably use that.

Description: The Tibet Oral History Archive documents in sound (primarily Tibetan) and text (English transcriptions) a large and diverse corpus of oral history interviews with common citizens, former government officials, and monks, both in Tibet and in exile in India. The Tibet Oral History Archive is being prepared for deposit with the Asian Division at the Library of Congress. Files include three digital audio files per interview (*.wav, *.mov, and *.mp3) and one XML file per transcript, encoded in compliance with the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) Guidelines. MODS is used as the Extension Schema for the Descriptive Metadata (dmdSec) section of the METS file which documents the entire Archive. A single MODS record describes the Archive, three separate MODS records document each of the three discrete Collections of the Archive, and a minimal MODS record documents each series of interviews with a single interviewee. Detailed information about each interview is included in the TEI Header of each transcript.

Berkeley Library is digitizing the tables of content for these materials, and packaging these as METS objects. These METS objects includes MODS descriptive metadata derived from MARC metadata in the online catalog.

Description: All items included in this digital collection (over 100,000 titles as of late 2008) were submitted in MODS format, embedded in METS files. In addition, a service METS/MODS file is used during digital resource display. Access is provided to the metadata for each item through the Citation tab. The Digital Library of the Caribbean is a multi-institutional collection housed at the University of Florida, and runs on the same technology as UFDC.
