Digital Library Federation / Aquifer Implementation Guidelines for Shareable MODS Records

The Digital Library Federation / Aquifer Implementation Guidelines for Shareable MODS Records has been released by the DLF Aquifer Metadata Working Group.
The primary goal of the Digital Library Federation's Aquifer Initiative is to enable distributed content to be used effectively by libraries and scholars for teaching, learning, and research. The provision of rich, shareable metadata for this distributed content is an important step towards this goal.

To this end, the Metadata Working Group of the DLF Aquifer Initiative has developed a set of implementation guidelines of the Metadata Object Description Schema1 (MODS) specifically for use in describing digital cultural heritage and humanities-based scholarly resources that are to be shared within the Aquifer Initiative and wider.
