This Confluence wiki site, maintained by DuraSpace prior to the recent merger with LYRASIS, will transition from the duraspace.org domain to the lyrasis.org domain on Saturday, Nov 16 beginning at approximately 7pm ET. A period of downtime of 2-3 hours is expected. After the transition, this wiki will be available at https://wiki.lyrasis.org/. All links to duraspace.org wiki pages will be redirected to the correct lyrasis.org URL. If you have questions prior to or following the transition please contact: wikihelp@lyrasis.org.

Subject line: MODS to RDF Mapping Recommendations now available

Hello all,

The Samvera MODS and RDF Descriptive Metadata Subgroup is pleased to announce that our MODS to RDF Mapping Recommendations (v.1.0) are now available:

https://goo.gl/Y5CNTt

This application profile provides recommendations for mapping MODS XML metadata for digital objects to RDF Linked Data classes and properties using a range of widely-adopted RDF namespaces.

The result of a collaborative process involving participants from more than a dozen academic and public libraries, this document includes a comprehensive mapping of MODS elements to RDF using real-world metadata use cases and hundreds of examples.

Rather than pursuing a straight XML-to-RDF approach using a single vocabulary or proposing (yet another) new formal ontology, the mappings include properties from a plethora of existing vocabularies that are already extensively used, in order to provide greater value to records in a Linked Data context.

A straightforward "direct" mapping (which does not require creating local objects for concepts such as subjects, people, or places) and a more thorough "minted object" mapping are provided.

Although this work was conducted under the umbrella of the Samvera digital repository framework, the mapping is system-agnostic and intended to be applicable in a wide range of contexts.

The group would also like to express gratitude for all feedback received from the community; many suggestions submitted during the previous review phase have been incorporated into the recommendations.

Sincerely,

The Samvera MODS and RDF Descriptive Metadata Subgroup

Hello all,

The Samvera MODS and RDF Descriptive Metadata Subgroup is pleased to announce that the initial draft of our MODS to RDF Mapping Recommendations is now available for review and comment:

https://goo.gl/SGCfev

This application profile provides recommendations for mapping MODS XML metadata for digital objects to RDF Linked Data classes and properties using a range of widely-adopted RDF namespaces.

The result of a 30-month collaborative process involving participants from more than a dozen academic and public libraries, this document includes a comprehensive mapping of MODS elements to RDF using real-world metadata use cases and hundreds of examples.

Rather than pursuing a straight XML-to-RDF approach using the MODS RDF Ontology v.1 or proposing (yet another) new formal ontology, the mappings include properties from existing vocabularies that are already extensively used, such as Schema.org, Dublin Core, BIBFRAME, BIBO, RDA, FOAF, EDM, and LC Linked Data Service datasets. The re-use of these vocabularies provides greater value to records in a Linked Data context.

A straightforward "direct" mapping (which does not require creating or maintaining local objects for concepts such as subjects, people, events, or places) and a more thorough "minted object" mapping are provided for most MODS elements.

Although this work was conducted under the umbrella of the Samvera digital repository framework, the mapping is system-agnostic and intended to be applicable in a wide range of contexts.

All comments and feedback are welcome. Feedback may be submitted via:

 - Comments added directly to the Google Doc

 - An online comment form (submissions are anonymous): https://goo.gl/forms/dpqxGWotqShB4Y0U2

 - Via email to mods2rdf@gmail.com

Comments will be accepted until August 1, 2018.

Thanks for your consideration!
