MODS RDF Ontology
This initiative is a work in progress.
MODS RDF is an RDF ontology for MODS. As
MODS is an XML schema for a bibliographic element set, MODS RDF is an expression of that element set in RDF.
A MODS/RDF namespace document, which provides a human-accessible list of MODS/RDF classes and properties, is accessible at: http://www.loc.gov/mods/modsrdf/v1
For more detailed information see The MODS RDF Ontology Primer.
MODS XML to RDF
MODS RDF may be used to create born-RDF MODS, or it may be used to create an RDF description corresponding to an existing MODS XML record. The latter is discussed in MODS RDF Primer - Part 2: MODS XML to RDF .
See Examples of MODS XML records and their corresponding RDF descriptions.
A stylesheet is available which converts existing MODS XML to MOD RDF (/XML).
