Subject: RE: Meeting Thursday, February 19th at 2pm EST

I agree that the MODS and related MARC standards are an excellent set of metatags to look at in the context of legislative documents. We should all take a look and see if it can encompass meta data applicable to legis documents (which is not to say Dublin Core can do that either). This might lead to a blended standard (namespacing both in) or may be easy to XSLT for those who use one versus the other or going over to MODS completely.
MODS does seem to have a XSL to XSLT MODS into Dublin Core that may make use of either transparent to the adoption of any general standard.
I will into it more closely and the Dublin Core person on the next call can answer some of the questions related to it.
Thanks very much for bringing this standard into the mix. The Library of Congress has obviously done an excellent job of thinking and implementing of standards that should be taken advantage of.

We've been talking to some colleagues at the Library of Congress about some of these topics.  Some of our standards experts are advising that we consider using MODS rather than Dublin Core.  I haven't yet studied all the differences, but you can find information about MODS at http://www.loc.gov/standards/mods/.
