MODS
Definition
This section provides information on the origin of a resource, including place of origin or publication, publisher or other issuing body, and dates associated with the resource.

originInfo has the following
  • Subelements:
    • place
    • publisher
    • dateIssued
    • dateCreated
    • copyrightDate
    • edition
    • issuance
    • frequency
Usage Note
OpenMIC users may choose to record publication information as part of the descriptiveEvent or in Technical metadata (for creation or digitization date) rather than in originInfo. Recording publication information as a descriptive event allows one to link distributor/publisher/broadcaster with the place and date of distribution or broadcast when there are multiple dates of release, broadcast, distribution, or publication.
