Reengineering a National Resource Discovery Service: MODS Down Under by Roxanne Missingham appears in the latest issue of D-Lib Magazine.
Australian libraries have shared resources and records for over two decades through Kinetica, a service provided by the National Library of Australia.

This article describes the use of MODS to transform records for digital resources into MARC records for resource discovery.
