MODS Full Record Examples

Table of Contents

These examples show how MODS elements are used in a complete record. There are no assumptions about what constitutes "full"; these are not intended to conform to any particular definition of what elements are required in a "full" MODS record (according to the MODS schema, there are not required elements, but at least one element must be present under the <mods> root). Additional MODS examples are found on the MODS homepage.

  <abstract>
Academic libraries need to change their recruiting and hiring procedures to stay competitive in today's changing marketplace. By taking too long to find and to hire talented professionals in a tight labor market, academic libraries are losing out on top candidates and limiting their ability to become innovative and dynamic organizations. Traditional, deliberate, and risk-averse hiring models lead to positions remaining open for long periods, opportunities lost as top prospects find other positions, and a reduction in the overall talent level of the organization. To be more competitive and effective in their recruitment and hiring processes, academic libraries must foster manageable internal solutions, look to other professions for effective hiring techniques and models, and employ innovative concepts from modern personnel management literature. </abstract>
