This page provides a mapping from MAB to MODS based on the requirements for the ViRR project.

Format Name[edit]

Source: MAB
Target: MODS


MAB Field Label (of AP) Description MODS Comment
001 Record Identifier Local, but not stable record identifier (always changes after updating the dataset) recordInfo recordIdentifier id="MAB001" not needed by Institute
720 Record Identifier Local and stable record identifier (as 001 always changes after updating the data) recordInfo recordIdentifier id="MAB720" needed for display purpose (NO editing!). Label would be: Katalognummer

If no person information exists, the creator name will be filled with the String "Unbekannt" during ingestion
Reason: In ViRR it is not allowed to have a work without any associated person.

  • 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

Mapping for Volumes (csv - MODS)

Example Data[edit]

Following bibliographic metadata is currently available:

General Information[edit]

  • As a rule we can state that every element is mapped with the full path. That means that for every MAB entry a full MODS 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.
