Abstract: We create metadata for a variety of reasons including discovery and identification of resources. The Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) is a descriptive metadata standard developed at the Library of Congress. Derived from MARC, it was originally designed for library use. However, it may be used for other applications. This overview describes the elements of MODS and presents the advantages and disadvantages of the MODS approach. By utilizing real life examples, the author will also show how MODS can be used with the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS).
