  1. Conversion Code Update
    1. Still being worked on. Stephen will hopefully have many new updates by next meeting, Jan. 11. 
  2. MODS OriginInfo Other Elements individual institution.
    1. Currently only BPL has mapping homework completed, so we will likely review after holidays at next meeting.
    2. BPL: concept of 'origination' element in opaque namespace that resolves to custom minted resolutions -- supports use cases of multiple publishers or multiple publication events.
    3. BPL: Not supporting issuance, supporting a single frequency instance outside of origination instances.
    4. Question about keeping date within origination instance. One reason to not include in origination is ease of access to date elements from downstream consumers.
    5. Question about possibility of keeping date in both places, but this still makes it harder to manage multiple instances of same date.
    6. Question -- does this this follow BIBFRAME pattern? 
      1. A: BF has Publication property that is similar, but ranges of properties on Publication are much more granular. EBUCore also has something similar with events.
    7. Question about EBUCore. 
      1. A: For time-based media. Offers some interesting options for complex publication events that occur in production of time-based media. Rebecca offered to take a look at using EBUCore properties for our OriginInfo mapping

  3. Next element assignment
    1. Those who haven't done mappings can complete their mappings or supply example records to see if options on the table will work for a range of use cases. Consider this issue of putting date as a property on the item or on the origination/publication event.
    2. Mapping for Language element
  4. Next meeting: Monday January 11th, 12:00 PM EST
