MODS Guidelines





An Asset Actions XML template file has been created for you to start from in creating an Asset Action file for an image object.

Workshop moderators will be available to assist you with the following activities related to Asset Actions:

  • Create an Asset Action file for an image, containing actions in the Default and Basic Image action groups.
  • Upload the image asset action file to the Explorer application, and interact with the image using UVA's Collectus tool.
  • Reference the Asset Action file from a MODS descriptive record using a MODS extension element.
