MODS:titleInfo

Definition: A word, phrase, character, or group of characters, normally appearing in a resource, that names it or the work contained in it.
Comment: "TitleInfo" is a wrapper element that contains all subelements related to title information. Data content is contained in subelements.
Subelements: title

Definition: A word, phrase, character, or group of characters that constitutes the chief title of a resource (i.e. the title normally used when citing the resource).

Application: "Title" without the type attribute is roughly equivalent to MARC 21 field 245, except that it includes only the data that make up the title and does not include the statement of responsibility.

subTitle

Definition: A word, phrase, character, or group of characters that contains the remainder of the title information after the title proper.

Application: "subTitle" includes a subtitle when it is desired to include it as a separate element. Alternatively, it may be included as part of a title. It is equivalent to MARC 21 fields 242, 245, 246 subfield $b.

partNumber

Application: "partNumber" is used for a part or section number of a title. This is equivalent to MARC 21 fields 130, 240, 242, 243, 245, 246, 247, 730, 740 subfield $n.

partName

Application: "partName" is used for a part or section name of a title. This is equivalent to MARC 21 fields 130, 240, 242, 243, 245, 246, 247, 730, 740 subfield $p.

nonSort

Application: "nonSort" begin and end tags surround the nonfiling text which should not be regarded in sorting. It is equivalent to the new technique in MARC 21 that uses control characters to surround data disregarded for sorting. It is used for the same purpose as the nonfiling indicator value that indicates the number of characters disregarded for sorting. Punctuation may or may not be included within the non-sort value depending upon whether it is part of the sorting or non-sorting data.
