Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS)

Maintained by the Library of Congress.

MODS was developed by the Library of Congress Network Development and MARC Standards Office as a MARC-compatible metadata format expressed in XML and using language-based element names. MODS takes a similar approach to resource description as MARC, with some rearranging, removing, and adding of data elements. MODS is frequently used as a descriptive metadata structure standard inside METS metadata wrappers for storage or exchange of digital objects.
