ready Metadata Object Description Schema

Abbreviation: MODS


General Information
Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) is a schema for a bibliographic element set that may be used for a variety of purposes, and particularly for library applications. As an XML schema it is intended to be able to carry selected data from existing MARC 21 records as well as to enable the creation of original resource description records. MODS is intended to complement other metadata formats. For some applications, particularly those that have used MARC records, there will be advantages over other metadata schemes. Some advantages are: the element set is richer than Dublin Core; the element set is more compatible with library data than ONIX; the schema is more end user oriented than the full MARCXML schema; the element set is simpler than the full MARC format. Please note that round-tripping between MARC 21 and MODS is not guaranteed.

Digital Repository of Ireland
The Digital Repository of Ireland (DRI) is a national trusted digital repository (TDR) for Ireland’s social and cultural data. We preserve, curate, and provide sustained access to a wealth of Ireland’s humanities and social sciences data through a single online portal. The repository houses unique and important collections from a variety of organisations including higher education institutions, cultural institutions, government agencies, and specialist archives. DRI has staff members from a wide variety of backgrounds, including software engineers, designers, digital archivists and librarians, data curators, policy and requirements specialists, educators, project managers, social scientists and humanities scholars. DRI is certified by the CoreTrustSeal, the current TDR standard widely recommended for best practice in Open Science. In addition to providing trusted digital repository services, the DRI is also Ireland’s research centre for best practices in digital archiving, repository infrastructures, preservation policy, research data management and advocacy at the national and European levels. DRI contributes to policy making nationally (e.g. via the National Open Research Forum and the IRC), and internationally, including European Commission expert groups, the Digital Preservation Coalition, DARIAH, and the OECD.
