MODS/MADS Editorial Committee

The MODS/MADS Editorial Committee is an international group of volunteers responsible for maintaining editorial control over MODS and MADS and their accompanying documentation as well as for the MODS and MADS XML schemas. The Library of Congress provides support by coordinating developments, such as hosting the Web site, handling inquiries, raising awareness, and maintaining/moderating the discussion lists.

The goals of the MODS/MADS Editorial Committee are to:

  • Set direction and priorities for MODS and MADS development
  • Approve additions, corrections and revisions of the MODS and MADS schemas
  • Maintain the MODS and MADS guidelines, reviewing and providing revisions as needed
  • Promote use and understanding of MODS and MADS for appropriate applications
  • Interact with other metadata efforts and standards where there is synergy (e.g. MARC, Dublin Core, METS, and PREMIS)
