  • 410 (place of publication) as well as 410a (place of print) can both only be mapped to mods:origininfo:place:placeterm, ending up with an array of placeterms, but unable to determine which one is place of publication or place of print
  • the same applies to 412 (publisher) and 412a (printer), which both are mapped to mods:origininfo:publisher.
  • Solution: As discussed in meeting, we will create two originInfo entries, if the entry contains date value it represents a publisher, otherwise it represents a printer

Example Data

Following bibliographic metadata is currently available:

General Information

  • As a rule we can state that every element is mapped with the full path. That means that for every MABMaschinelles Austauschformat für Bibliotheken entry a full MODSMetadata Object Description Schema element will be created. E.g.: every creator will have his own name tag.
  • The bibliographic metadata will be transferred to MODS according to the recommendation from the zvdd.
