MODS 3.4 released
The MODS/MADS Editorial Committee and the Library of Congress are pleased to announce that a new incremental version of the MODS Schema, 3.4, is now available at <http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/mods.xsd> (and also available at <http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/v3/mods-3-4.xsd>). Version 3.4 is backwards compatible to 3.3 and therefore only introduces certain types of changes that do not result in invalidating existing MODS records. A new major revision of MODS to make more substantive changes is currently under discussion.

A complete list of changes in MODS 3.4 may be found at <http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/mods-changes-3-4.html>. Revised versions of the MODS User Guidelines and the MARC to MODS mapping that incorporate the 3.4 changes will be available on the MODS web site soon.
Please direct any comments or questions on the MODS 3.4 Schema, or MODS/MADS developments in general, to the MODS Listserv <http://listserv.loc.gov/listarch/mods.html>.
