MODS User Guidelines "Lite"

The following details a simpler view of MODS elements using only those elements that have a correspondence to the 15 Dublin Core elements in DCMES version 1.1 (unqualified Dublin Core). The MODS elements could include subelements and attributes as defined under each. The use of this subset of MODS would result in a simpler record than one using the full schema, but there is a tradeoff in the richness of the record.

For a full Dublin Core to MODS mapping see: www.loc.gov/standards/mods/mods-dcsimple.html.
