Purpose: the purpose of this research is to determine the compatibility of Resource Description and Access (RDA) rules related recordings of attributes of first and second groups of FRBR with Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS)
Methodology: the research population includes primary and secondary parts, and attributes of the Metadata Object Description Schema (MODS) on the one hand; and Resource Description and Access rules related recording of attributes of first and second groups of FRBR on the other hand. The research used comparative method to gather needed data on both aspects of the study, to check how are compatible these two aspects, and to produce eXtensible Markup Language (XML) tags for providing descriptive information of different resources according to the Resource Description and Access (RDA).
Findings: in general, 440 rules were identified and analyzed from the current RDA chapters 2-11. 440 MODS–oriented tags were compatible with RDA rules. The present research shows that all of the RDA rules related recording of attributes of first and second groups of FRBR are compatible with MODS and equivalents could be found in MODS for information extracted from the RDA rules. To make compatible RDA rules with MODS, more than one primary part should be used in some of the rules; especially those that are usually manipulated for providing access points to different entities.
Conclusion: out of the 20 primary parts of MODS, 16 were used in this research. These 16 parts were selected according to the first and second entity groups in FRBR. Findings indicated that there is a full compatibility between RDA rules and MODS; and one would either be able to describe the information of a given resource in RDA or MODS. Findings are in fact a mixture of primary and secondary parts, specifications and values of RDA compatibilized with MODS. They would also be able to act as a model for describing Persian resources.. Finally, the research shows examples of Persian records randomly retrieved from the national bibliography which have been described according to the recommended tags.
