Steven explained there is a need at Boston Public Library to work on converting existing MODS metadata to rdf. This need is shared by a number of institutions, included Amherst, University of Maryland, others Aaron pointed out that MODS will not go away, there is a need to develop two way mappings, eg. BPL harvests metadata from Amherst via OAI-PMH, including MODS.
Steven and Aaron and a couple others are working on a group to map mods to rdf Nick Ruest pointed out as a possible interested party, and others in Islandora Community UCSB is separately working on this kind of conversion UCSD has their own solution - to convert mods to rdf, and other conversions - willing to share code, but it is tied to a very complex data model, that they are trying to simplify Suggestions made to try and wait for report from descriptive metadata subgroup, on the results of their survey, which should be relevant to this topic mods to rdf topic will be raised at next descriptive metadata subgroup meeting
HydraConnect 2015 Desire to try and have representatives from each subgroup talk about their subgroups work at HydraConnect - not sure exactly who from each group will be there Technical metadata group will try to find a rep, others encouraged to do so also.
