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.

By utilizing real life examples, we will also see how MODS can be used with the Metadata Encoding and Transmission Standard (METS).
